Film Series: Frances Ha

2012. USA. Dir: Noah Baumbach. With Greta Gerwig. 86 min.

Frances, a broke aspiring dancer rambling about NYC with the awkward grace of a baby duckling, struggles to make sense of a time when her best friend is settling down and adulthood is rudely knocking. Baumbach and Gerwig’s close collaboration proves effortlessly humorous, earnest, and as lively as its titular heroine.
