Frances Ha (2012) IMDb


Seen in 2016.


The great thing about this film is its careful use of comedy to make the intimacy of the very close portrait of a vulnerable and quietly struggling slacker less awkward than it usually is, without actually reducing that intimacy. It’s simultaneously a very fine example of restraint from sexism against a young adult female subject in US cinema.
