About the film:
Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she¹s 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.
--Julie MacArthur, The Huffington Post
"Does for Brooklyn what Manhattan once did for Manhattan. Baumbach & Co. make Frances Ha seem as fresh as a spring morning on Smith Street."
--David Fear, Time Out
"Sublime. An enchanting riff on friendship and the late-20-something right of passage into true adulthood. One of Baumbach’s most accessible and joyous works."
--Rodrigo Perez, IndieWIRE
