Trailer Watch: Noah Baumbach’s Mistress America

It’s hard to nail a trailer for a satire that stars such a gratingly self-obsessed character as Greta Gerwig’s Brooke in Mistress America, and this first look from Fox Searchlight sells Baumbach’s latest film as far more ‘quirky’ than it actually is. After seeing it at Sundance, I found it to be a rather clever, entertaining critique of the half-hearted do-it-all millennial ethos, so you can expect much more out of the screwball comedy than this teaser suggests. Mistress America will be released in theaters August 14.
