This small budget collaboration between writer/director Noah Baumbach and writer/star Greta Gerwig (in a wildly inventive comic performance) centers on Frances, an apprentice dancer fumbling though post-college life in Brooklyn. Fast, funny, faultlessly flirty, and shot in crisp black and white, FRANCES HA perfectly captures the rhythms of an over-educated, underemployed generation more intimate with their friends than their lovers. Dir. Noah Baumbach, USA, 2013, 86 min., NR, DCP
Frances Ha was the star of Damsels in Distress which played at Belcourt a while back.

Dinner at Fido's first for those interested. I'll be at Fido's at 6:30 p.m. It's across from Boscos and Sam's. My cell# is below if you don't spot us.
—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.
—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.
—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).
Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 7:25 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.
"Exhilarating, smart and delightful. A terrific new film that's incredibly rich to watch. Greta Gerwig is embraceable, unpredictable and possessed of gifts for physical comedy. This is unquestionably her defining performance to date." —Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
