Sleeper To See: Greta Gerwig Elicits Ha-Has With Indie Comedy 'Frances Ha'

This weekend, moviegoers of all ages and levels of geekdom will be Trek-king to theaters for the further space adventures of Kirk and Spock. But for those of you craving a more humorous, earthbound tale, we recommend you check out this week’s “Sleeper to See.”

THE MOVIE: Frances Ha

THE DIRECTOR: Indie stalwart Noah Baumbach (Greenberg, The Squid and the Whale)

THE CAST: Rising starlet Greta Gerwig (To Rome with Love, No Strings Attached), who co-wrote the script; Adam Driver, best known for playing Lena Dunham’s quirky boyfriend Adam on HBO’s Girls; Mickey Sumner (Girl Most Likely, CBGB), daughter of rocker Sting; and Grace Gummer (Larry Crowne, Margin Call), daughter of actress Meryl. (Streep, that is.)

THE STORY: In this bittersweet comedy, Gerwig stars as Frances, a 27-year-old woman struggling to make it in New York City. Even though her bank account is dwindling, her love life is nonexistent and her dreams of becoming a dancer grow increasingly implausible, Frances manages to live her life with some semblance of joy and humor.

THE BUZZ: In the past decade, Noah Baumbach has directed a number of acclaimed indie films headlined by big names, including Greenberg, starring Ben Stiller, and Margot at the Wedding, starring Nicole Kidman. But critics are suggesting Baumbach has made his “best film since 2005's The Squid and the Whale” (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) with Frances Ha, in which he bumps Greenberg supporting player Greta Gerwig up to headliner status. Indeed, Gerwig charms in the film as an aspiring artist struggling to survive her quarter-life crisis. If the storyline sounds similar to HBO’s Girls – and it’s guaranteed to satisfy that show’s fans – Frances Ha depicts twenty-something angst in its own original way and includes enough stylistic references to the works of French New Wavers Godard and Truffaut to give it cinematic flavor.

IF YOU'RE A FAN OF…: Don’t miss an endearing, NYC-centric creative collaboration between real-life partners Baumbach and Gerwig that recalls the exciting, early NYC-centric collaborations of former real-life partners Woody Allen and Diane Keaton.
