NO STRINGS ATTACHED

GRETA GERWIG (Patrice) has been dubbed by the Los Angeles Times as "The Accidental ‘It' Girl.” Gerwig made her mark in the indie and festival film markets starring in such films as "Nights and Weekends” and "Hannah Takes the Stairs.” After her most recent starring role in "Greenberg,” Gerwig is quickly becoming a household name. Famed New York Times film critic A. O. Scott said, "Ms. Gerwig, most likely without intending to be anything of the kind, may well be the definitive screen actress of her generation…”

Gerwig is currently in post-production playing the role of Linda in the Jason Winer-directed remake of "Arthur.” Gerwig will star alongside Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Russell Brand and Nick Nolte in the film. The comedy centers around a drunken playboy (Brand), who stands to lose a substantial inheritance when he falls for a woman his family does not like. The film will be released by Warner Bros. in 2011.

Gerwig is also in post-production for Whit Stillman's new film "Damsel in Distress,” in the lead role, Violet. The New York Magazine describes the film as "[a] freewheeling comedy, full of musical numbers, failed love affairs and Stillmanian bons mots on everything from Hacky Sak to the sexual proclivities of 12th Century Cathars.” The picture is set to be released in 2011.

Gerwig last appeared on the big screen as Florence Marr opposite Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach's "Greenberg.” The film was released on April 1, 2010 and has been receiving much acclaim as audiences and critics alike are definitely taking notice. Most recently, Gerwig was nominated for the Breakthrough Actor category in the 2010 Gotham Awards, in addition to Best Female Lead in the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards for her role in "Greenberg.”

Gerwig is best known for her part in the Mumblecore movement. She co-wrote, co-directed and starred in "Nights and Weekends,” directed by Joe Swanberg. The film, which screened at South by Southwest, sold to IFC and was the first major sale in the South by Southwest festival history.

Gerwig's other credits include her lead roles in: "Yeast,” directed by Mary Bronstein; "Baghead,” directed by the Duplass Brothers; "Hannah Takes the Stairs”; and "House of the Devil.”

Gerwig graduated magna cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University.

Gerwig currently resides in New York City.
