Maggie's Plan (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Maggie’s Plan (2015)

Greta Gerwig plays Maggie, a young woman who wants to have a baby, but without the icky complications of the normal method. It’s artificial insemination all the way for her, and she has a guy picked out. His name is Guy, which is a good example of the offbeat humor in Maggie’s Plan. The plan…
