Plot – In the film “Mistress America”, a contemporary screwball comedy produced by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, a college freshman in New York, finds herself doing a crash course on life in the metropolis when she befriends her fascinating future stepsister. The first semester at the university in Manhattan is a big disappointment for Tracy. The lessons are boring, her room-mate is hostile and the guy that she has a crush on, Tony, has an obsessive jealous girlfriend, Nicolette. Rejected by the literary club which she desperately wanted to be part of, the aspiring writer gets in touch with Brooke, the almost thirty-year-old daughter of her mother's boyfriend, and everything in her life changes from one day to the next. Brooke introduces Tracy to a side of New York she has long dreamed of. Fascinated by Brooke's picturesque but illegal apartment, by her soon-to-open venue which is a combination of bar/hairdresser's/art gallery/community center, and by the infinite sequence of her casual absurd comments, Tracy is soon dragged by her future sister into an orchestrated series of adventures. However, when a major funder pulls out from the restaurant deal, Brooke's seemingly charmed life begins to fall apart.
