Francis Ha

By Susanstrausberg
An intriguing look at the slow and winding process of coming of age. Well written and directed. Wonderfully acted. It is a sophisticated story told at a slow pace - sometimes too slow. I liked it!...

Engaging and endearing - somewhat flawed

By vizwords
Like the main character herself, this movie is at times engaging and endearing - though not without flaws. I took my wife to see Frances Ha because all of the mainstream films seemed like they would...

Post-Modern Love!
