Frances Ha (♦♦♦½)

Frances (Greta Gerwig) is a 27 year-old dancer in NY City aspiring to become a professional with a dancing company. She lives with her best friend Sophie.

When their lease is about to expire, Sophie tells Frances that she is moving in with her friend Lisa whom, according to Frances, Sophie despises. So begin Frances troubles because she cannot afford to live alone. Frances moves in with two guys but she loses her place in the dancing company and she's forced to improvise to make ends meet.

I liked Frances Ha. It's the coming-of-age story of an adult, or rather an adult finding herself at last. I think that Frances Ha is a reflection of the times we're living in which young people finish college and find themselves either criminally underemployed or unemployed and unable to forge a destiny for themselves. It's sad but a reality nonetheless.

To all adults who have fibbed to fit in or to those that are talented yet can't find a way to make it, this movie is for you.
