  • Baumbach, in his most compassionate film since The Squid and the Whale, catches Frances in the act of inventing herself. It's a glorious sight to see. show more

  • Frances Ha also marks the rare instance in which an actress has the perfect role at the perfect time. Ms. Gerwig's work here is fragile, delicate, subject to bruising; something that could wither under too much attention. Perhaps Ms. Gerwig is the greatest actress alive. And maybe Frances Ha is just the ghost orchid of independent cinema. show more

  • Aiming for lightness but landing with a thud, Frances Ha is a well-meaning blunder. Director Noah Baumbach’s ode to Brooklyn twentysomething life is a flibbertigibbet fable that, like a self-absorbed flirt you meet at a party, grates on the nerves despite being easy on the eyes. show more

    FRANCES HA:(A-) Quite the sincere charmer. Greta Gerwig finallys gets it right.

    I went into Frances Ha with high expectations given my love for the Squid and the Whale and my like of Greta Gerwig in Greenberg. Unfortunately, I was quite disappointed. In short, the characters and dialogue were not believable to me, and for me, that is a big problem.

    Quirky. Black and white. Awkward moments, but charming. I liked this movie a lot because Frances Ha is adorable and she says funny things. I just want to give her a hug and a kiss.
