Frances Ha on DVD & Blu-Ray

Directed by Noah Baumbach, and written and Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha follows the story of a twenty something New York woman, portrayed by Gerwig, who is a bit lost in life. Her best friend and roommate Sophie is moving on with her fella, leaving Frances to find an alternative. While working at a local dance company, she finds a new apartment with some friends, has money trouble, visits her parents, and heads back to New York. She continues to have fun while not quite accept the reality that is around her. In this Criterion Collection indie film Frances is a lively character and you can’t help but root for her as she fumbles through life decisions.

Thanks for the recommendation, I will be checking this out!


I put off watching this movie because of how people had described it to me - I just wasn't sure it was my thing. I finally watched it recently, and it ended up being one of my recent favorite films. I started off just loving this movie's depiction of a super-close relationship between two young women, went through awhile where I got a bit annoyed with the protagonist, but then absolutely couldn't help rooting for her and identifying with her. By the end, I admit it, I totally shed a few tears - in a good way. Really glad we have it in the library collection!
