Co-written by and starring Greta Gerwig!
United States | 2012 | Noah Baumbach
Greta Gerwig’s arthouse breakthrough as a writer and actress was this delightful, touching, and acclaimed 2012 comedy-drama that has various parallels to her acclaimed new film Lady Bird. Gerwig plays Frances, a ditzy but endearing 27-year-old New Yorker, a Sacramento transplant, whose dance career is going nowhere. The film chronicles Frances’ gauche, funny, fumbling attempts to find her place in the city—and in the world—and even contains a Christmas scene in California featuring Gerwig’s real parents, who are fictionalized in Lady Bird. Blu-ray. 86 min.
