Frances Ha

Frances Ha ★★★★

Frances Ha is another rich character study from Noah Baumbach that is rooted in French New Wave (playing more like a Woody Allen homage than a Wes Anderson picture book) and explores the common theme of this generation of people who have potential but don't do anything with it. While Baumbach is treading familiar waters here, he offers more of a sense of hope than the remorse of his other features of adults acting like children.
