Such a beautiful movie!

Frances Ha is a well-made and well-acted film, although the meandering plot will frustrate less patient viewers.

All those millennial feels man.

A hilarious movie about hopes and dreams that is both beautiful and hilarious.

A brilliant bildungsroman film about a young woman in her 20s getting her life together and finding her place in the world. This is the coming-of-age story we need in the 21st century.
½ July 27, 2017
The format is like packaged with short multi-parted films of the same characters in one girl's story of reaching to her dream and success in a similar flowing fashion of a coming-of-age story, which makes the film narratively decent with good performances and connective writing. (B)

A lovely and charming bit of Woody Allen inspired storytelling about finding your way.

Despite a charismatic performance by the lead, and featuring spot on slice-o-life New York overview, the work follows a character going nowhere and invites us along for the ride. Which is to say the thing goes slowly, so slowly.

Subtly hilarious, bitingly real, and monumentally unique, "Frances Ha" is not only a great movie, but a game-changing one. It also happens to feature the most effervescent performance of 2013 from Greta Gerwig.

Greta Gerwig is so immensely likable. Her performance is so uninhibited and she performs as if there isn't anyone to impress. It is a starmaking performance in a rather funny and warm little lark of a film. Frances Ha utilizes lovely black and white visuals to portray a struggling 27 year old dancer in a city where dreaming is easy but achieving dreams is harder. The dialogue spikes with insight and comedic mini moments and if it occasionally is just too self-knowing and quirky, there is another gem of a moment around the corner. It is an endearingly small and truthful film. One that feels homemade its lack of a true plot makes it a laidback and enjoyable experience. Rating: 83

Over-hyped self absorbed drivel :-)

An example of a promising Woody Allen-esque story that has as its main character a woman so absolutely infantile that it becomes very difficult not to find her irritating (even if Greta Gerwig is definitely adorable). Besides, the film is not half as funny as it believes to be.

Quintessential mumblecore film

One scene of her play fighting with a freaked out friend is enough to destroy the movie.

Just nothing really going on . Not enough for me

This was hipster self-indulgent cliche at its worst. Black and white, bleak crummy Brooklyn apartments, no plot, obnoxious glasses, mediocre contemporary dancing. And worse...it was boring.

Very woody allen-independent filmish about a young woman in NY. The story is a kind of a love story about her and her best friend. She is trying to find her way as a dancer, an adult, and with independence from her best friend. In the end, she doesnt figure it all out, but shes on her way. I really did like the main characters quirkiness and her fun, free spirit. Brought me back to my college bf days, eventually tho we all grow up and away. A bit overrated, but def an enjoyable film.

Greta is a dynamic lead and Noah Baumbach captures New York beautifully.
September 2, 2016
The storyline may seem to unfocused for some, but tender direction from Noah Baumbach and a lovely performance from Greta Gerwig on the title role makes up for its flaws.
