Description

Actor, writer, director--Greta Gerwig has shone in multiple roles during her short yet profoundly influential career. This February, The Roxy celebrates five of the major achievements of this singular presence in contemporary American film. We're showcasing her star-making performances in Frances Ha, Mistress America, and Greenberg, and the masterpieces she wrote and directed, Little Women (closing off its phenomenal run at The Roxy with a week of 35mm) and Lady Bird. It's just our way of showing our Greta-tude. 

Greenberg: Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller), a failed musician now making a living as a carpenter in New York, returns to Los Angeles to house-sit for his brother (Chris Messina). He is stranded there -- since he doesn't drive -- until his brother's assistant, Florence (Greta Gerwig), comes to his rescue. She is as much a lost soul as he is, and as the pair begin spending more time together, they form a significant connection -- giving Roger a much-needed reason to be happy.
