Noah Baumbach directs this stylised comedy co-written by and starring Greta Gerwig as a young woman struggling with the demands of growing up. Filmed in black and white, the movie revolves around the adventures of Frances (Gerwig), a 27-year-old aspiring dancer. Since college Frances has been inseparable from her flatmate Sophie (Mickey Sumner), but when Sophie, now a successful publisher, announces that she is moving out, Frances finds her life at a crossroads. With distance rapidly growing between her and Sophie and her lack of finances leading her to move into smaller and less glamorous apartments, Frances begins to realise that perhaps 27 isn't so young after all. Will she be able to move on from her youthful dreams and get her life back on track?
