I rather liked this. It took me a little while to get into it; the characters weren't entirely clicking for me until a plot twist almost half way through, but after that nearly everything fell into place, including what had come before. Gerwig and Hawke are great playing variations on their best known screen personas. Moore is the MVP. My review: https://catholiccinephile.wordpress.com/2016/06/14/maggies-plan/
With all the star power here--Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Michael Shannon (in a non-creepy role), Steve Carell--I'm surprised I hadn't heard about Freeheld already. The only other movies the director, Peter Sollett, has made are Raising Victor Vargas and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist. The screenplay is by Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia, The Painted Veil. This seems like a movie that will get a big Oscar push, although it's coming out in October, which isn't in prime awards season. Link to the 2-post thread about the documentary Freeheld, which is about the same story and won the 2007 Oscar for Best Documentary Short.
