How long has it been since we've had a movie like this? After a long Oscar season, and lots of serious movies and discussions, a new trailer for Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" has appeared like a spring breeze.

Two film festival favorites from 2012 are slated to be hitting theaters in the coming months via IFC Flims, and some new clips are available for your viewing pleasure. The first, from “Like Someone In Love,” arriving on screen this Friday, shows the young prostitute Akiko (Rin Takanashi) protesting her assignment to a particular elderly client. Director Abbas Kiarostami’s characteristic leisurely pacing comes into play, and it’s a captivating scene -- if partly because of the voyeuristic sense that comes with a seedy story about prostitution in the foreign setting of Tokyo.

The legend goes that when Wong Kar-Wai brought "2046" to the Cannes Film Festival, the print was still dripping as he worked until the very last minute to finish it. And to say that his latest, the martial arts biopic "The Grandmaster," has had a few road bumps and delays would be an understatement. The film has been in production on and off for the past couple of years, and had things gone according to plan, it would be in theaters in China now, opening this week. But of course, WKW had to continue tinkering, and the release date was pushed to January 8, 2013. But it seems the end is nigh, god willing, and "The Grandmaster" has set an international bow.

The Noah Baumbach Fanclub was likely pretty disheartened this year. "While We're Young" had casting rumors buzzing around it, but soon went quiet (to make matters worse, he states here that it likely won't go for awhile) and his pilot for Jonathan Franzen's "The Corrections" was ultimately not picked up by HBO.

Shot in near-complete secrecy and unannounced until just this past July, it's suitably consistent that director Noah Baumbach's seventh feature, “Frances Ha,” would also become one of the surprise highlights of the festival circuit this year. Co-written by Baumbach and Greta Gerwig, who also stars, the film already garnered a fantastic reception at Telluride this year (from us included), and now, following a similar performance in Toronto, it appears distribution for the comedy-drama is coming together.

For the enterprising mini-majors, studio subsidiaries and indie start-ups, there are three key markets to acquire films: There's Sundance, where only a handful of movies come with distribution already sorted, and everyone hopes to uncover the next "Little Miss Sunshine" or "Precious." There's Cannes, which not only has a huge film market (often concerned with pre-sales as much as finished movies), but debuts some of the biggest international films of the year. And then there's the Toronto International Film Festival.

Loose, limber and driven by a fierce energy and staccato/pause rhythm we haven't seen previously from this filmmaker, Noah Baumbach's sublime "Frances Ha" is a fresh and vivacious near-reinvention of the director/writer's comedic milieu. An enchanting riff on friendship and the late-20-something right of passage into true adulthood, while the buoyant comedy does focus on those who still don't have their shit together, it is however, leagues more rich and emotionally layered than the average arrested development dilemma that seems to pervade 20/30-something comedies of late.
