For fans of the current wave of independent filmmaking,
there’s a certain romantic curiosity surrounding the power-trio of Brit
Marling, Zal Batmanglij and Mike Cahill. Marling holds the center,
anchoring and serving as the face of the trio’s projects together.
Richard Gere takes center stage as Robert Miller, a hedge
fund giant on the verge of a huge professional and personal crash that
will most certainly take down his devoted wife (Susan Sarandon) and
loyal daughter (Brit Marling).
I have a question for Greta Gerwig, the
odd naturalistic beauty who has bounded out of the Mumblecore underworld
into the bright and glaring lights of mainstream attention, while still
skipping back and forth across the great divide.
