MAGGIE’S PLAN REVIEWED
“Maggie’s Plan” is the right film to piss off your Right leaning friends. What is it about Gerwig starring features that tends to rile the Conservative’s blood? While I’m not a neo-con, I don’t favor following vain characters in a modern setting. Especially ones that treat issues such as parenthood as an accessory to a better life. Sure, the titular plan blows up in Maggie’s face, but I hate that she’s eventually allowed to make it work for her again. What about her kid? What about the family she ruined?
Oh yeah, you’re not supposed to shame anyone anymore for being terrible people. Maggie’s terrible. Maggie’s plan is questionable. However, the film works for what it is.
