Filmed in glorious black and white and co-scripted by its star Greta Gerwig, ‘Frances Ha’ is a journey through the life of a New Yorker trying to navigate her way into adulthood.

Another city, another story. Frances lives in New York, but she doesn’t really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she’s not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren’t really speaking anymore. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. Frances Ha is a modern comic fable that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.
