meezahns’s review published on Letterboxd:
A charming little film about a woman who only gets a little bit better while still being an immature asshole. Frances Ha was interesting and far better than the indie film version of New Girl that I thought it would be when Greta was rooming with Adam and the dude from Marvelous Mrs Mazel. Greta brought such charm and sympathy to an awkward and what would likely be an annoying character, had Frances been played by anyone else.
The cinematography and pacing/structure are beautiful and enhance the specific vibe of the world along with the all around wonderful (and hopefully hyperbolized) performances and the fact that it is in black and white.
Any movie about a millennial being a doofus longer than this sweet sweet 1 hour and 26 minutes is kidding themself. Hooray for Frances Ha.
