Noah Baumbach's brilliant new comedy
Sneak Preview of Noah Baumbach’s FRANCES HABAM Rose Cinemas (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, NY) Map it $13
Frances (Gerwig), a 27-year-old aspiring dancer, is career-less, romance-less, and directionless—but somehow manages to maintain a sunny optimism in Baumbach’s endearingly loose-limbed new comedy. Shot in silver-toned black and white, it’s a Woody Allen-esque ode to New York City, a Georges Delerue sampled homage to the French New Wave, and, above all, a showcase for what is “unquestionably Gerwig’s defining performance to date” (The Hollywood Reporter). Baumbach, Gerwig, and supporting actress Mickey Sumner will appear in person for a Q&A following the screening.
