Actress Lola Kirke embodies this anxiety and vulnerability in "Mistress America," a sharply written exploration of identity and friendship by director Noah Baumbach and actress Greta Gerwig.With its crackling, stylized dialogue, "Mistress America" almost should have been a play. Gerwig melts into Brooke like she was her all along.Part of the charm of "Mistress America" is the compassion it has for both these women.The screenplay is the real star of "Mistress America," though in real life nobody talks the way people do in this film.An ode to language, "Mistress America" and a picture of modern, middle-class young-adulthood, which might begin well after age 30 .
