What do two academics gossip about over lunch? Well, if they’re played by Maya Rudolph and Greta Gerwig — as they are in Rebecca Miller’s new film Maggie’s Plan, out May 20 — then they dish about what a “panty-melter” Ethan Hawke is, as you or I might. But hearing Rudolph casually ID Hawke’s character as “one of the bad boys of ficto-critical anthropology” is one of the primary pleasures of this exclusive clip from the film: Even a lunch conversation about hotties is oh-so-casually elevated when you have two wordsmiths like Rudolph and Gerwig in the fray. Not that any of Rudolph’s warnings about Hawke will inspire Gerwig not to go there … sometimes, you have to pursue the panty-melter, despite what your brain and BFF are both telling you. Watch and learn.
