100 Word Review – Frances Ha (2012)

A truly wonderful film that speaks to the heart of anyone who’s ever pretended to be an adult.

Frances (Greta Gerwig) is an awkward twenty-something living in New York, surrounded by people who seem to have their life together but never seeming to manage it herself.

Co- written by Gerwig and director Noah Baumbach (The Squid & The Whale, screenplay of Fantastic Mr Fox), the feature was shot entirely in black and white. Combined with the light-hearted soundtrack, it gives the whole film a quirky feel completely in keeping with the main character’s eccentricities. Funny, sweet and genuinely moving, it’s fantastic!
