Gerwig, 31, and Hawke, 44, held hands while strolling through the Manhattan neighborhood for a scene in Maggie’s Plan. For the day of shooting, Hawke was attired in a denim jacket and charcoal pants with a military-inspired overcoat. Gerwig, meanwhile, was outfitted in a navy blue dress under a gray plaid coat.

In Maggie’s Plan, Gerwig, best known for Frances Ha, plays the titular role. Hawke, Oscar-winner Julianne Moore, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Travis Fimmel and Alex Morf are also starring.

“It’s the story of a young woman and the joys and pitfalls of trying to make your own way in New York City,” screenwriter and director Rebecca Miller told Deadline. “Greta has a very specific kind of innocent intelligence about her that made her perfect for this part. I’m so happy I found her.”

Maggie’s Plan, which began filming in New York Monday, is slated to hit theaters later this year.
