Greta Gerwig is radiant as a woman in her late twenties in contemporary New York, trying to sort out her ambitions, her finances, and, above all, her tight but changing bond with her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner). Meticulously directed by Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming) with a free-and-easy vibe reminiscent of the French New Wave’s most spirited films, and written by Baumbach and Gerwig with an effortless combination of sweetness and wit, Frances Ha gets at both the frustrations and the joys of being young and unsure of where to go next. This wry and sparkling city romance is a testament to the ongoing vitality of independent American cinema.

I have to say though, Frances (un-dateable) does, in the end, get her "act" together and yet, you sympathize and empathize with her throughout the film (Greta Gerwig gives a powerhouse performance!) the rest of the cast is rippin too.
Very snappy, snazzy and insightful writing. Beautiful cinematography (LOVE that black'n white!), direction, screen play... this film is tight, funny, a bit sad cuz all she would have had to do is accept responsibility for herself and she could have avoided poverty YEARS ago.
Great acting - just a winner film.
At the end of the day though, Greta Gerwig creates an immensely appealing character. Any parent with a child in her twenties who is still working things out can take heart watching this movie.
