Rachel McAdams stars as a young woman whose new job in New York could be the chance of a lifetime. The new gig quickly becomes more taxing than she anticipated, though, as it wreaks havoc on her personal life. Will she make it? Who knows, but chances are she’ll encounter some entertaining big shot New York-types along the way. If this sounds like familiar turf that’s already been traversed by Anne Hathaway, it should. Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna has takes us away from Runway magazine to Day Break, a morning news show. McAdams stars as the hopeful producer trying to keep control over the star hosts (played by Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford), while juggling a personal life. It might be tempting to write Morning Glory off, but its slew of co-stars is nothing to shake a stick at (Ty Burrell, 50 Cent, and Jeff Goldblum, to name a few).
