Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. "Frances Ha" is a modern fable in which Noah Baumbach ("The Squid and the Whale," "Greenberg") explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.
