Warmly embraced at the Toronto and New York film festivals, FRANCES HA is a comic exploration of a generation that’s overeducated and underemployed. Shooting in crisp black and white, director Noah Baumbach (THE SQUID & THE WHALE) directs Greta Gerwig in this effervescent comedy about a young woman who throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Gerwig, who also co–wrote the script, shines in this charming film reminiscent of Jean Luc Godard’s Bande a part and Woody Allen’s Manhattan.
