New York twentysomething Frances (Gerwig) is content pottering through life. But when her boyfriend dumps her, and best friend Sophie (Sumner) asks her to move out, she has to take charge of her future and follow her dreams.
Although the monochrome photography will invite comparisons with Manhattan, Frances Ha is closer in spirit to Godard than Woody Allen. Anchored by a charming performance from Greta Gerwig, it’s as light and breezy as a walk in Central Park, and just as refreshing.
