Frances Ha | Ratings & Reviews

"Arriving from the States lauded with praise, writer/director Noah Baumbach and writer/star Greta Gerwig's comedy drama isn't quite the mumblecore masterpiece we've been led to believe. For one thing, it's not mumblecore but an expensively mounted international production with minimal plot. For another, it isn't a masterpiece."

Flicks, Matt GlasbyFlicks

"Baumbach pushes beyond sincerity in search of truth, drawing from such stylistic forebears as the French New Wave, Woody Allen and Andy Warhol's Factory films to capture a reality that has eluded him on his more polished dramedies."


"Charming, poignant and often very funny, Baumbach and Gerwig’s latest collaboration is a joyous portrait of an unformed personality that should strike chords of recognition in all who watch it."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Daringly plotless and disconnected (“just like my life!” squeals the target audience), Noah Baumbach’s latest, a breeze, feels a lot less self-absorbed than usual, mainly for not having a neurotic at its core."

Time OutTime Out

"Gerwig, who has effortless, behind-the-beat verbal timing, also possesses a knack for physical comedy, an enviable ability to obliterate the difference between clumsiness and grace."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Gerwig's performance is full of depth and nuance; self-conscious without being mawkish, clever behind the kook."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Perfect little nugget of a comedy... A vehicle for Gerwig’s moony charms, and she and Baumbach have crafted a smart screenplay that posits her as the embodiment of the late-20s NYC nomad."

The DissolveThe Dissolve

"An exhilarating black-and-white New York seriocomedy from Noah Baumbach with a stellar star turn by co-writer Greta Gerwig."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Although the monochrome photography will invite comparisons with Manhattan, Frances Ha is closer in spirit to Godard than Woody Allen. Anchored by a charming performance from Greta Gerwig, it’s as light and breezy as a walk in Central Park, and just as refreshing."
