Greta Gerwig in Clip and Poster for Noah Baumbach's 'Frances Ha'

Described as a valentine to New York City, IFC will release Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha starring Greta Gerwig and Mickey Sumner on May 17 and today they've delivered a clip from the film along with the poster.

Due to timing conflicts I wasn't able to catch Frances Ha in Toronto last year, but the response seemed to be warm and I'm looking forward to seeing it.

The story centers on Frances (Gerwig) who lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. Frances Ha is a modern fable in which Baumbach explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption.

Check out the clip and poster below.

    Baumbach is one of my top American directors working today and to say I'm looking forward to this one is an understatement. The Squid and the Whale and Greenberg are two of the best American movies of the past decade easily.

    After seeing Margot at the Wedding and what a mess it was, I have no interest in seeing another Noah Baumbach film again.

    I saw this in Toronto. It was delightful.

    Based on those 21 seconds I can tell this is going to be a masterpiece. I'll add this one to my list of films to be on the look out for this year.
