About Frances Ha

Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she¹s not really a dancer. Frances 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. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. FRANCES HA is a modern comic fable that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.


"Grand, romantic and generous."
Joy Dietrich, The New York Times
"Does for Brooklyn what Manhattan once did for Manhattan. Baumbach & Co. make Frances Ha seem as fresh as a spring morning on Smith Street."
David Fear, Time Out
"This is our movie."
Nick Pinkerton, The Village Voice
"A film of total freedom. Greta Gerwig is a revelation. Her Frances Ha may be the most hopeful, ebullient character Noah Baumbach has ever put on screen."
Scott Foundas, Variety
"Sublime. An enchanting riff on friendship and the late-20-something right of passage into true adulthood. One of Baumbach’s most accessible and joyous works."
Rodrigo Perez, IndieWIRE
"So, so funny...Gerwig is terrific."
Scott Tobias, The AV Club
"Greta Gerwig\'s Frances is a convincing, winning creation, an earnest and awkward apprentice dancer struggling to find a foothold on the edge of adulthood in New York."
Victoria Ellison, Los Angeles Weekly
"Captures the highs and lows, the unintentional competition and unconditional love of a female friendship."
John Horn, Filmmaker Magazine
"Greta Gerwig shines."
Tom Carson, Los Angeles Times
"An unabashed valentine to both Greta Gerwig herself and her plucky fellow twenty somethings."
Kyle Buchanan, GQ
"Gerwig is so winning and optimistic here she makes struggling seem way more fun than having your life together."
Ann Marie Baldonado, New York Magazine
"The revelation in Frances Ha is Gerwig and what she brings to the screenplay and screen. Frances and thus the film in general have this subtle realness to them; you know this girl or maybe you kind of were this girl."
Diane Solway, NPR
"A must see. A celebration of the ferocity of female friendship in all its intensity and richness. Mickey Sumner is wonderful."
Jesse Hawthorne Ficks, W Magazine
"Hilarious. Profound as it is whimsical."
Julie MacArthur, San Francisco Bay Guardian
"One of the most surprising, endearing, funny and uplifting films of the year. Greta Gerwig is a revelation."
Todd McCarthy, The Huffington Post
"Exhilarating. A terrific new film. This is unquestionably Gerwig\'s defining performance to date."
Ann Hornaday, The Hollywood Reporter
"Greta Gerwig is at her incandescent best."
Melissa Anderson, Washington Post
"Sharp and witty...Gerwig\'s kinetic performance of the title role reveals her to be a nimble comedian, perfectly balancing mortification and bravado."
A.O Scott, Village Voice
"Beautiful. A fleet-footed, black-and-white New York story about a young woman in crisis that turns self-consciousness into an exalted form of authenticity."
Caryn James, The New York Times
"Delightful. A witty treasure."
Nigel Smith, IndieWIRE
"Endearing and hilarious. Greta Gerwig gives her most appealing performance yet."
