Directed by Noah Baumbach, Frances Ha stars Greta Gerwig as Frances, a twentysomething Brooklynite barely making a living as an apprentice with a dance company.

Co-written by Baumbach and Gerwig, Frances Ha screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

LOVED it! For some reason reminded me of WA's Annie Hall.

Rave reviews did not fit my temperament, I suppose. I was bored beyond belief by this video, kept waiting for it to get better, it never did, and I turned it off after running about 1/2 of it.

Noah Baumbach takes a lot from the French New Wave here: the beautiful black and white photography, the lilting score, and the film's glazed window on the private world of its alternately naive and savvy main character, reminiscent of Truffaut's young waif in the 400 Blows. Nicely marks a precarious generation one couch away from a park bench (or the 'rents basement back in Sacramento) just out of sight in Bloomberg's New York.

Greta Gerwig is charming but the movie a bit aimless.

Light as a feather and tickles almost as much. It's a film of moments, some that sparkle and some not quite so much. It's all Greta all the time, with gorgeous B&W cinematography.
