Join the Naughton Gallery and UsFolk for a special SCREEN/PRINT screening of Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s Frances Ha, with free limited edition posters for all attendees by illustrator Cat Finnie.
Greta Gerwig is radiant as Frances, a woman in her late twenties in contemporary New York trying to sort out her ambitions, her finances, and, above all, her intimate but shifting bond with her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner).
Meticulously directed by Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story), with a free-and-easy vibe reminiscent of the French New Wave’s most spirited films, and written by Baumbach and Gerwig with an effortless combination of sweetness and wit, Frances Ha gets at both the frustrations and the joys of being young and unsure of where to go next. This wry and sparkling city romance is a testament to the ongoing vitality of independent American cinema.
Coming soon: Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, opening at QFT on Boxing Day 2019.
