After watching Frances Ha, I want my life to be written by Greta Gerwig.
Starring and written by Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha is about a struggling dancer in New York trying to find her footing in life as she goes from place to place, experiencing the highs and lows of adulthood.
It’s hard to find any flaws in this movie. In a way it feels like a French New Wave film in the fact that it’s shot statically and in black and white. But Gerwig’s dialogue is easily the best part of this film. With lines like “Don’t treat me like a three hour brunch friend!” you can’t help but admire the charm and wit of this movie.
The acting is all superb, with director Noah Baumbach getting the best performance out of every actor. And the shots of New York are splendid. Honestly, I can’t recommend this movie enough.
