Frances Ha

Frances Ha ★★★★

Wait for the 'Ha' moment!

It's a typical Noah Baumbach film. The actors aren't acting, they are living. It's like people are doing what they generally do and a camera is capturing it. Frances (Greta Gerwig) is a 27-year-old dancer struggling for a foothold in New York. She has friends, but it's New York, if you don't pay your share of the rent, your friends kick you out. That's Frances' life and the plot in a nutshell.

The screen is soaked in black and white color palette just like Frances' lackadaisical life. The narrative solely rests on her shoulders. It's her life and her journey. It's her character that keeps you going while she moves from place to place. It's hard to pick one great moment as Frances' scenes are magical. Writing is masterful and hits all the right notes. Wait for the end, it's all worth it. Greta Gerwig is stunning. Brilliantly supported by extended cameos, Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver, Grace Gummer, and Michael Zegen. It's worth your time.
