Wow. This was, for reasons I cannot quite explain, horribly boring - and the characters are all jerks. I actually turned it off after some 45 minutes, because it only made me annoyed. Too bad.

This is probably the most charming character study movie I've ever seen; it really is delightful!

I agree that Greta Gerwig did an amazing job and really made Frances playful and sincere and sweet. The other actors were excellent as well.

The pacing of this movie also really stood out as exceptional.. there were so many fantastic little scenes sprinkled throughout the movie of her just interacting with someone or doing something simple, that really fleshed her out and gave both her and the audience time to process everything.

The soundtrack was used really well too. It was just a fun and wonderful movie all around :)

Ahoy sexy!

This is that kind of a film that left me with a huge smile on my face. Just delightful!

Frances Ha is a lovely little indie film mostly about growing up. Frances is a very unique and honest girl, she tries to keep things in her life together and she wants to be a dancer but she not seems to find some stability in life. She is also very immature sometimes and that does not help too. So, we follow her journey in New York where she is trying to pursuit her dreams while other things are happening between the lines.

It's funny, touching and honest. Beautifully shot in black in white giving it an even more charming look.

Greta Gerwig is just brilliant! She really shines in this film with such a natural performance and I know that from this day forward I will always look at her and remember Frances. I guess I just love an awkward character like her.
