In amongst a summer of rather disappointing blockbusters (except Iron Man 3) it's nice to see that films like this can still get a theatrical release even during the crowded silly season of cinema. Shame then that no one bothers to post their views on the movie on here.

I for one thought it was a lovely, uplifting comedy that ignores the romance that blights many an indie-com for a more realistic take on twenty-somethings feeling their way in the world.

Quotable and stylish and utterly adorable

Clearly (and admitted by Baumbach) inspired by the Nouvelle Vague tells the story of Frances and her best friend Sophie who live in New York and try to make the best of their lives, having to deal with everyday things of finding a job, paying bills and (worst of all) have a complicated and extensive lovelife.
Made with a small crew and shot on location, this film makes you long for the best works of the French New Wave. More than once you`ll recognise the influences of the work of Truffaut and Godard (links with and hommages to The 400 Blows, Jules et Jim and Band of Outsiders cannot be missed). It all feels very free and fresh. With sharp dialogues with a lot humor in them, Gerwig and Sumner are fantastic as the best friends, in the many scenes in wich they share the screen the energy between them jumps of the screen.
No sequels, spin-offs and reboots for Baumbach. With this absolutely delightfull coming-of-age film he shows us that there is still hope for (independent) cinema.

Jules: "What" ain't no country I ever heard of! They speak English in What?
Brett: What?
