Review: ‘Frances Ha’ by Noah Baumbach

Frances-Ha-film-still-3

A Poetic Review

Frances Ha
Works as a dancer
Frances Ha
But it’s not steady employment
Frances Ha
Is very erratic
Frances Ha
Lives with her friend Sophie in an attic.

Frances Ha
Gets sacked from her company
Frances Ha
Has to find a new apartment
Frances Ha
Moves in with two artists
Frances Ha
Who think she’s “undateable”.

Every day she got closer
She knew in her heart it was over
She’d love to stay with Sophie and be normal
But it’s just so overrated.

Frances Ha
Is a film by Noah Baumbach
Frances Ha
Who made The Squid and the Whale
Frances Ha
He also made Greenberg
But I haven’t seen that one.

Frances Ha
Is a very good movie
Frances Ha
With a winning performance from Greta Gerwig
Frances Ha
Who will remind you of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall
Frances Ha
In a year in which Woody Allen is being praised for a “return to form”.

Every day she got closer
She knew in her heart it was over
She’d love to move back in with Sophie and be normal
But it’s just so overrated.

And then it happened on an NY evening
Frances Ha’s choreography production was a great success
And wasn’t at all overrated.
