Co-written by Baumbach and the film's star Greta Gerwig, "Frances Ha" tells the story of a young New York woman who yearns for more from life, her relationships and more. Presented in black and white, the film was a surprise sensation at Telluride and TIFF last year, and certainly captured our attention. In our review from Telluride we noted that for Baumbach "it marks an exciting new period in the filmmaker’s oeuvre and one that will hopefully yield many more collaborations with the endearing and charming Greta Gerwig." And we wrapped up our coverage from Colorado by noting, "the alchemy between them has produced a seriously funny, sad and engaging dramedy and it's one of Baumbach's best efforts to date."
