Frances Ha ★★★★★

"I'm so embarrassed, I'm not even a real person yet"

Just saw an advanced screening and some Q & A with director Noah Baumbach and actress (who is now one of my favorites), Greta Gerwig. I'm going to put it out there, this is easily one of the year's BEST films. It's such a complex yet very light masterpiece. You can immediately come to terms why this was compared to Lena Dunham's HBO hit show "Girls", then again you'll definitely see how this character was created to be a true original. The story, the actors' performances & the whole vibe of the movie all came together and just struck me pleasantly in a way that I walked out of the theater and learned a really big life lesson. I'm saying that because I haven't lived yet, and I saw myself in Frances because she seemed like she really wasn't figuring things out then again EVERYONE goes through that & it was nice to know that even if you feel like your life is in the gutter, we're all born to become something bigger than ourselves. If I could describe this in one word it would be HUMAN.
