Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” [clips and poster]

So really not much here but if you’re a Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming, Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg) fan, here’s a quick glimpse into his latest picture that became one of the most loved films of The Toronto Int’l Film Festival – at least around these parts.

First up, you can see to the right a somewhat uninspiring new poster for the film (click the image for a larger version).

If that isn’t doing it for you, here are a couple of newly released clips from the film that while don’t give us much insight into plot or character, we do get a general sense for the film’s tone and style – being in black and white probably the most obvious.

I have to be honest, none of this is really doing it for me, but despite really not caring much for his last two features, Baumbach is amazingly still in my good graces after K&S and my beloved Squid and the Whale. So I’m willing to give this film and Rot’s genuine review of it, the benefit of the doubt for now.

Take a look at the clips below and tell us what you think. If you’ve already seen the film in festival mode, how did it go over for you and those around you?

FRANCES HA was one of my TIFF favourites as well –


I went to Frances Ha with someone that has hated every Baumbach film he has seen, and he thought it was great. This is the Baumbach film that is easy to love.

Also if you are a fan of Dunham’s Girls, this is very much in that territory and not just because Adam Driver is in both.
