When I hear about actors directing their first features, my inevitable first thought is "Why?" Truly, why does Ben Affleck need to direct a Dennis Lehane novel? What's he getting out of it? But when I heard about Greta Gerwig directing a film, my first thought was "Why not?" She's co-written two already with Noah Baumbach and those films bear her stamp as much as his. I'm looking forward to this one.

This is a place holder for Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, which has been quite well-received by those who've seen it. But, as noted in the Hostiles thread, that group doesn't yet include the trades, whose critics opted for more high-profile titles in a very crowded screening schedule.

Both Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are being especially touted for this film, legit reviews for which I'll post as they become available.
