In writer-director Noah Baumbach's, MISTRESS AMERICA, Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she meets her soon-to-be stepsister and adventurous gal about town, Brooke (Greta Gerwig), Tracy is rescued from disappointment and seduced by Brooke's mad schemes.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Mistress America brings out the best in collaborators Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, distilling its star's charm and director's dark wit into a ferociously funny co-written story.

Common Sense Says
Quirky, talky comedy has some laughs but rings false.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mistress America is a comedy about a college-age girl that seems best suited to college-age viewers. There's some strong language ("f--k," etc.) and references to sex and lovers (though nothing overly graphic is shown on screen). Characters drink socially on several occasions, with some minor drunkenness (played for humor) that doesn't have any real consequences. Characters argue and make some angry accusations. Like the filmmakers' previous offering, Frances Ha, the humor may not appeal to all teens.
