Free Members-Only Screening: Frances Ha
For LACMA Film Club, Film Independent, and New York Times Film Club members only.
Co-Presented by the New York Times Film Club
Writer/director Noah Baumbach and his Greenberg leading lady Greta Gerwig reunite for a crackling comedy about mid-20s malaise. Gerwig is Frances, a dance teacher who hopes to join her company’s touring show. She appears content enough with her life… until her best friend and roommate Sophie (Mickey Sumner) winds up moving to Japan. Unmoored, Frances drifts between her alma mater, Paris, her parents’ suburban house out West, and the streets and apartments of her adopted hometown of New York. To a rollicking soundtrack that includes David Bowie and The Rolling Stones, Gerwig gives a star turn as the charmingly tenacious and energetic Frances. Baumbach’s trademark wit and snappy dialogue combine with Sam Levy’s inky black-and-white cinematography to create a bittersweet gem of a film.
Bing Theater | Includes a conversation with co-writer/director Noah Baumbach, co-writer/star Greta Gerwig and co-star Mickey Sumner.
