Be careful what you wish for—especially if it involves your handsome co-worker leaving his wife for you. In writer-director Rebecca Miller’s sophisticated screwball comedy, college administrator Maggie (indie ingénue Greta Gerwig) gets more than she bargained for when she falls in love with a charming, married writer on her faculty (Ethan Hawke). Maggie thinks she’s found happily ever after when John shows up on her doorstep, professing his love and readiness to leave his cold, academic wife (Julianne Moore). But storybook romances aren’t always what they seem, as Maggie soon discovers. With flawlessly funny performances by the leads, crackling Woody Allen-style wit, and terrific cameos from the likes of Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph, you won’t find a more subversive or winsome romantic comedy at the festival.
