Tuesday May 7 at 7pm

Frances Ha

Directed by Noah Baumbach. With Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner, Charlotte D'Ambiose
US 2013, 35mm, b/w, 86 min

Frances lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's 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 in which Noah Baumbach explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption. - IFC Films
