"Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. She is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. She 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. Greta Gerwig shines in Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha, a modern comedy about a charming 27-year-old New Yorker who wants so much more than she has, but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness."--Container.

A playful and touching film, tough it seems unfinished to me; there ought to have been another twenty minutes to give an ending to the story. I was quite annoyed at the use (theft!) of the music from "The 400 Blows" in the film.

A very stylistic, unconventional look at a woman's life in New York. The characters in this film are so loveable and Greta Gerwig has such an interesting approach to acting. Sharply written dialogue throughout, great chemistry between the characters, and just some really funny moments. Great movie!

So great! This is one of my superfave movies!!!! Love love love. It's about friendship, growing up, and accepting the changes.

So super-good! It's about growing up, and the evolution of a friendship. Beautiful! Especially Frances' outpouring on , "YOUR person in this world".

This was like a bad episode of Girls and in fact the annoying guy that plays Lena Dunham's boyfriend is in this movie. I can't tolerate movies with obvious improvisational scenes, I could only stand perhaps 10-15 minutes before I turned it off.

Don't waste your time. Completely dull and pointless and about nothing - but thinks it's trendy. Nothing redeeming about this one. Story is about a group of 20- something New Yorkers leading dull, pointless lives and ends the same way. Kept waiting for the point of the movie, never arrived, ticked off because there were other, better things we could've been doing.

Mildly interesting movie of the ups and downs of a woman whose life could have been a train wreck, if she was a little less positive. Greta Gerwig is good but, she doesn't have a dancer's grace for the role. And I don't get why it was shot in B&W. It sets nothing for the tone of the film.

Frances: It's that thing when you're with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it... but it's a party... and you're both talking to other people, and you're laughing and shining... and you look across the room and catch each others eyes... but - but not because you're possessive, or it's precisely sexual... but because... that is your person in this life. And it's funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it's this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It's sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don't have the ability to perceive them. That's - That's what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.
