Greta Gerwig is radiant as a woman in her late twenties in contemporary New York, trying to sort out her ambitions, her finances, and, above all, her tight but changing bond with her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner). Meticulously directed by Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming) with a free-and-easy vibe reminiscent of the French New Wave's most spirited films, and written by Baumbach and Gerwig with an effortless combination of sweetness and wit, Frances Ha gets at both the frustrations and the joys of being young and unsure of where to go next. This wry and sparkling city romance is a testament to the ongoing vitality of independent American cinema.

DVD: DVD, NTSC region 1, high definition widescreen (1.85:1) presentation; 5.1 Dolby Digital surround.

Worth a Look

While not for everyone, this is a simple glimpse into the life of Frances, her struggles, hopes and humiliations. Not too deep, only 86 minutes,. I like to see how other people live sometimes, even if their lives are mundane. There's always something to learn about people.
