A New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as the possibility of realizing them dwindles.
Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy fights through grief and trauma to regain her faith, console her children, and define her husband's historic legacy.
Maggie's plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant and impossible Georgette. But one daughter and three years later, Maggie is out of love and in a quandary: what do you do when you suspect your man and his ex wife are actually perfect for each other?

I've decided to embrace the mystery of the universe and stop bossing everybody around so much.
Good luck with that, bossy pants.

Had to see it twice in the theater to catch all the good lines
So much more entertainment than everything else on the market now that it is summer. The fact that it is written in the context of academic genre with some faux anthropology references should not dissuade you (not faux? should be). Fantastic script focusing on a uniquely circumspect millennial and mother wanna-be. Many plans go awry here but all things work out nicely and in an utterly unexpected way. The unmitigated narcissism of the Hawke and Moore characters is priceless especially considering how clueless they are. I genuinely laughed out loud many times. Greta is terrific but all kudos to writer director Rebecca Miller (her dad was married to Marilyn Monroe? who knew?).
