Mistress America / Kubrick

Of current actor-director combos, Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach are significant for their writing partnership – and for Gerwig’s impact on Baumbach’s choice of subjects. Since hooking up with the 32 year-old Gerwig, Gen-Xer Baumbach has started training his eye on 20-something millennials – first in 2012’s "Frances Ha" and with the new MISTRESS AMERICA. Adam and Josh review Baumbach and Gerwig's latest, and revisit their Top 5 Desert Island Directors.
