CULVER CITY, Calif. (July 11, 2016) – A sweet, sophisticated, and funny exploration of modern romance, MAGGIE’S PLAN debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and digital on August 23 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Greta Gerwig (No Strings Attached), Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (Best Supporting Actor: Training Day, 2001; Boyhood, 2014), Bill Hader (Trainwreck), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Travis Fimmel (“Vikings”) and Academy Award winner Julianne Moore (Best Actress, Still Alice, 2014) star in Writer/Director Rebecca Miller’s (The Private Lives of Pippa Lee) film from Sony Pictures Classics. Gerwig plays Maggie, whose plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with a married man (Hawke), destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant Georgette (Moore). MAGGIE’S PLAN was a selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival.

In Rebecca Miller’s witty romantic comedy, Maggie (Greta Gerwig) is a vibrant New Yorker who, without success in finding love, decides to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), an anthropology professor and struggling novelist, she falls in love for the first time. Complicating matters, John is in an unhappy marriage with Georgette (Julianne Moore), an ambitious academic who is driven by her work. With some help from Maggie’s eccentric best friends, married couple Tony (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways.
Written and Directed by Rebecca Miller from a story by Karen Rinaldi, MAGGIE’S PLAN was produced by Rachael Horovitz, Damon Cardasis and Rebecca Miller, with Philip Stephenson, Temple Williams, Lucy Barzun Donnelly, Alexandra Kerry, Michael J. Malis and Susan Wrubel serving as executive producers.
