Frances Ha (2013)

2 Jun

HBO’s hit series GIRLS is known its intimate look at life through the lens of four aspiring young intellectual women living in 21st century New York. Frances Ha, a film by Noah Baumbach, goes down that same path, giving us a taste of the complicated and multilayered world of today’s youth.

Baumbach (mostly known for his masterpiece The Squid and the Whale and occasional collaborations with Wes Anderson), directs his films with such a pinpoint precision that gives his characters room to walk and breath. Greta Gerwig, who also wrote the film, is incredible as the leading lady Frances, and it becomes so hard not to fall in love despite her character flaws.

Yes, the comparisons to GIRLS are unavoidable (both even feature upcoming actor Adam Driver), but Frances Ha sticks out as being more memorable because of its moving pureness and unique energy. Lena Dunham would be proud.

7/10 stars
