Shot digitally in black and white, Noah Baumbach's latest is a story set among New York artistes, full of banter about wealth and pretension, social climbing and social falling. For all its verbal charm, it's the star, Greta Gerwig, who keeps the film aloft with her combination of saucer-eyed innocence, sheepish grins and arms-flailing clumsiness. While many of us—or some of us—will be charmed by the performance, it's safe to say that others will find it maddening. But not everyone loved Katherine Hepburn, either.
