Watch: New Clips from Noah Baumbach’s ‘Frances Ha’ and Abbas Kiarostami’s ‘Like Someone In Love’

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.

Frances Ha Like Someone In Love

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 second clip is from Noah Baumbach’s hotly anticipated “Frances Ha,” starring and co-written by Greta Gerwig. It’s the type of deceptively inconsequential scene you might expect in a Baumbach piece, but also highlights what may be Gerwig’s contribution with a funny, “Girls”-esque witticism about a black leather couch. The story centers on Gerwig as a twenty-something in NYC whose life revolves around her roommate, until said roommate moves out. “Frances Ha” drops May 17th. Check out the clips below.
