Frances-Ha-PosterNoah Baumbach made his much-anticipated return behind the camera last year with Frances Ha, which was easily one of the best films I saw last year. The film debuted at Telluride and went on to screen at TIFF – you can read our review here – and will soon be making its way into US theatres this May.

This week brought with it the first poster and clip, and now Apple have debuted another excellent clip for us to enjoy. This time around, we see the brilliant Greta Gerwig and Mickey Sumner having a disagreement, giving us a look at the rift that has emerged between them.

“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 has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren’t really speaking anymore. 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 comic fable in which Noah Baumbach explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.”

Starring alongside Gerwig and Sumner is a great cast, headed up by Adam Driver, Michael Zegen, and Patrick Heusinger.

Baumbach is directing from a script he and Gerwig co-wrote, and it’s every bit as awesome as you’d expect it to be penned by the two.

And on top of everything, Frances Ha was also produced by Baumbach, who reteamed here with Scott Rudin (Greenberg, Moonrise Kingdom) and Lila Yacoub (Greenberg, Rampart).

Frances Ha will be released in the US on 17th May through IFC Films. Still no word on a UK release date, but we know that Metrodome have the rights for our shores. So hopefully we’ll be seeing it on the big screen later this year too. I can’t wait to see it again. For now, here’s the great new clip to give you a glimpse of the brilliance that is Frances Ha. Enjoy.
