Trailer Tuesday: Frances Ha

Frances Ha film

A critically acclaimed film by Noah Baumbach, released last month, is an honest portrayal of the struggles with life in your late twenties – yet it still succeeds in ticking all the feel-good boxes.


Frances Ha (played by Greta Gerwig, also the co-writer and Baumbach’s girlfriend) is an aspiring New York dancer who’s struggling in arguably all aspects of her life: a best friend drifting away, a dwindling dancing career, not enough money, and a general messy existence. The clever dialogue infused with Gerwig’s clumsy charm and fresh energy makes this film a delightful watch. The beautiful black and white images have rich tonality and many shades of grey – the same as the reality they are trying to capture.
