Frances (a fantastic Greta Gerwig) is 27 and decidedly does not have her shit together. She bounces from job to job and apartment to apartment, barely scraping by while trying to make it as a dancer. Her friends are either better at life or just luckier; she’s not sure which. To some, this may feel like another entry in the subgenre of cringe-inducing comedy, but this new film by Noah Baumbach is closer to late-’70s Woody Allen classics like Annie Hall or Manhattan (to which it is obviously indebted). It’s hilarious and touching, and you definitely know someone like Frances. (See Movie Times)
