About the Movie
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 that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.

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: One of the happiest sights you'll see all summer is a montage of Gerwig running and twirling across Chinatown with David Bowie's "Modern Love" on the soundtrack.
My new favorite movie. Soooooo so so so awesome. Greta Gerwig is amazing and hilarious.
This is the kind of movie that will leave you thinking about it for days after you've left the theater. Interestingly enough, however, the movie isn't really about anything. It's just so perfectly made that the nothingness keeps your attention.
Profound, humorous and contemplative on emotions and human behavior. For me, Greta nailed the definition of love.
