Why it should be on your radar: Awards watchers might want to take in Noah Baumbach's latest at some point this summer as I imagine it could swing back around at the end of the year. Particularly, Greta Gerwig's springy performance will be a talking point for many as this black-and-white slice -- call it Woody Allen by way of Williamsburg -- zips along and finds some profound thematic turf. I would call it Baumbach's best work to date and a nice antidote, if nothing else, to the high concept onslaught of summer movies.
