New Trailer: FRANCES HA
Today, IFC Films premiered the trailer for Frances Ha, the new comedy from writer-director Noah Baumbach. This appears to be a beautifully shot love letter to New York City in pristine black and white cinematography. The story follows Frances (Greta Gerwig) through her day and night travails in the City. She is a dancer, but does not dance professional and does not have a settled in job or apartment. The film appears to speak of young people, well, people anywhere from their mid to late twenties into their early forties, and the ambiguity, love and searching for whatever it is people search for in life. What are we doing? I can't figure out what I should be doing or how concerned I should be about it. When I see this trailer that is some of the concepts that come to mind, as well as the idea of all of us under forty folks trying to figure out life and realizing we have no idea what we are doing. We still need experiences and love though. Well, I am really excited to see this little film and the black and white photography reminds me of Gordon Willis' gorgeous black and white in Woody Allen's Manhattan. The film opens on May 17. Enjoy the trailer and Gerwig is a star in the making.
