Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in new York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren't really speaking anymore. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has, but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. Frances Ha is a modern comic fable in which noah Baumbach explores new York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.
I think this is one of the best “growing up and figuring it out” movies I’ve ever seen. I really warmed to Frances - Greta Gerwig inhabited her character beautifully - and there were just these small but pivotal moments in it that you instantly recognised from your own experience. It’s kind of ‘Girls’ - with many great minor characters - Adam Driver is there being fabulous - and I also enjoyed Grace Gummer from Extant - being someone we probably all knew or know.
