Dance like Greta for the next entry in our New York November series, Noah Baumbach’s resplendent city symphony, Frances Ha.
Greta Gerwig is radiant as Frances, a woman of twenty-seven living in New York trying to sort out her ambitions, her finances, and, above all, her intimate but shifting bond with her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner). Struggling to find work as a dancer, Frances constantly moves between apartments and odd jobs to maintain stability. As life goes on however, her options for the future appear fewer than before, and her friends seem liable to disappear along with them.
Written by Gerwig and director Noah Baumbach with an effortless combination of sweetness and wit, Frances Ha is a testament to the ongoing vitality of modern independent American cinema.
Frances Ha screens starting Friday, November 3rd.
Friday, Nov 3rd – 2:30pm, 5:30pm
Sunday, Nov 5th – 3:30pm
