Frances HaClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. She is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. She has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren't really speaking anymore. Greta Gerwig shines in Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha, a modern comedy about a charming 27-year-old New Yorker who wants so much more than she has, but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Writing with Gerwig, Baumbach has created a fey, sneakily charming generational touchstone on a par with Annie Hall and his own Gen Y col-grad comedy Kicking and Screaming.
Fresh: As Frances literally dances her way through the streets of New York, you can't help smiling and knowing she will be OK. She will figure out how to be the adult she was meant to be.
Fresh: Few films top Woody Allen's Manhattan for capturing New York City's blend of rapture and apprehension. Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha comes close.
Fresh: A genuinely heartfelt, gorgeous and beautiful celebration of youth, friendship and grappling with all the contradictions and challenges that life throws at us.
Brutal and tiring... lackluster acting in most cases
My partner and I were excited to see this. However, my partner's response a the end was, "man that was brutal". We kept waiting for the story to unfold, to have a plot. I would perhaps have enjoyed it on my own as a kind of meditation. I cannot recommend the film and am sorry I wasted my time and my lover's time.
Totally over rated
Hated this movie. I agree with other review——kept waiting for the movie to improve. Didn’t even watch it to the end. What a waste.
Totally over rated and
BORING. Maybe they should have considered shoot in some colour, might have been a lil more interesting. Save your $$ n time.
