The indie film Frances Ha first screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and was met with a warm ovation. Now, the dramedy starring hipster favorite Greta Gerwig (I like to refer to her as the lovechild of Chloe Sevigny and Zooey Deschanel if they were to have a lovechild) is ready for the world. The first trailer for the movie has hit the Interwebs. Take a look:
It looks like it is cut from the same cloth as HBO's Girls, but from different corners of the fabric. They both have lost and confused twentysomethings trying to figure out what the hell is going on with their lives. Both of the main characters live in New York — because, as we know, that is the epicenter of twentysomething angst and turmoil. One of the main differences between the two is that one is in black and white — and that makes it even more cool and hipster-friendly. Joking aside, I had the chance to see it at TIFF and it was a fun movie that may have similarities to Girls, but it's totally a different creature. I am also a huge fan of the the director, Noah Baumbach (he directed and wrote indie faves The Squid and the Whale and Greenberg) who also co-wrote the film with Gerwig. Plus, you can never have enough movies and/or TV shows about awkward, confused girls living in New York.
