About Frances Ha
Quirky comedy from the director of Greenberg and The Squid And The Whale. Frances Halliday (Greta Gerwig, also co-writer) is a 27-year-old torn between the promise of her university days and the realities of trying to forge an adult life in New York. She wants to work her way up at a dance company where she is an apprentice but lacks grace, poise and general ability. She plays silly games with her best friend Sofie (Mickey Sumner) and they are as affectionate as toddlers. But when Sofie eventually moves out and into another friend's trendy Tribeca flat, Frances begins to whirl from one living situation and emotional realisation to the next. Whether visiting her parents at Christmas or on a jaunt round Paris, Frances tries to remain optimistic in the face of growing up.
