Frances Ha (2013)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 23rd, 2013 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

It’s ebullient and joyous but still laced without the proper amount of pain and pathos, everything working in incandescent tandem with its various pieces in order to make the movie come alive to its own free-flowing beat. Make no mistake, Frances Ha is a stunning achievement, an exercise in pure cinema that’s as rare as it is spectacular.
