Frances Ha Movie Summary
Frances Ha is a modern comic fable in the tradition of classic Woody Allen; not just because of the black & white cinematography or intricate authentic New York locations, but also for the refreshing observational wit Greta Gerwig possesses.
As cash strapped Frances Ha, she is epic in up tempo delivery; getting inside the character who has no real place of her own. She prefers to couch hop or crash in friends apartments while apprenticing for a established NY company. She’s not exactly a dancer, but still looks to become a full time member. That, in turn, will allow her a chance to develop her own choreography.
Her best friend, Sophie, doesn’t often see eye to eye with Frances often brushing her with the silent treatment.
Frances is a spontaneous and free wheeling individual that endears her to many. However it often prevents her confidence to shine at crucial moments.
She takes a two-day trip to Paris putting her into further financial turmoil.
Often finding herself surrounded in conversations regarding children, marriage, and careers and so forth, her own direction seems to be a continuous sway even resorting to a brief stage of lying to those close to her.
Exploring The Big Apple with Frances is hilarious, interesting, heartbreaking and ambitious with cool musical interludes that mean something.
