Frances Ha

I’ve just finished watching Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha. I really enjoyed it. It isn’t dramatic in a traditional sense, it isn’t fast-paced, but it’s lovely.

It was also interesting, watching it, to see how despite the mundane setting and everyday events, there’s at its core a story unfolding. There’s the serenity (life with Sophie) before the life-shattering event (Sophie moving out). There are the struggles that generate unforeseen challenges, and then there’s … well, I won’t spoil it. But I will say that the challenges that Frances deals with along the way (housing, friendship, relationships, art) are all resolved in some sense at the end, in their own way.

It is … It’s warm hearted, and I recommend it.
