A film by Noah Baumbach, USA 2015, 84’, original version (with Italian subtitles)
Starring Greta Gerwig, Lola Kirk, Jason Segel, Joan Cusack

Tracy, a university freshman, had imagined a completely different life in New York, where she lived isolated and deprived of stimuli. However, when she meets Brooke, her future step-sister – the volcanic and wild Greta Gerwig, co-author of the script – she is dragged into senseless adventures in Manhattan. Form the most original director of American film comedies working today, an enjoyable and dysfunctional view that draws on Woody Allen with added folly, colours and speed.
