When Noah Baumbach tackles the subject of people who are seemingly lost in life, the results are usually wonderful films such as Greenberg and The Squid And The Whale. His latest, co-written with and starring girlfriend Greta Gerwig, promises more of the same. Take a look at the first trailer for Frances Ha over at Apple.
We’re introduced to Frances (Gerwig, brimming with her usual slightly dazed charm), a twentysomething woman sort of living in New York (though without an apartment to call her own) and sort of training to be a dancer (though she’s not an official member of the dance company she works with). Her best friend is Sophie (Mickey Sumner), but they have problems.
While she figures out what she really wants from life, Frances explores the possibilities and, from the looks of this trailer, spends her time either falling over like a klutz or getting into play fights with unwilling opponents.
The likes of Adam Driver (usually found making Lena Dunham’s life more complicated on Girls), Michael Zegen and Patrick Heusinger co-star in this one, which arrives in the US on May 17, but doesn’t have a release date for the UK just yet.
