Frances Ha

Frances Ha is the only black and white film I’ve watched in a while – and it’s pretty beautiful. Given that most films nowadays are shot with bright colours, special effects, and maybe some 3D, I was a bit worried that I’d find the black and white disconcerting, but within seconds I’d completely forgotten. Telling the story of 20-something Frances (the talented Greta Gerwig) living in New York, Frances Ha brilliantly captures her struggles to become an official grown up: dealing with constant money worries, finding somewhere to settle down, and turning her love of modern dance into an actual career. It also explores the world of female friendships, including how relationships, traumas, and salary can all create divisions. The script, co-written by Gerwig and director Noah Baumbach, is witty and pertinent – although Frances’ ability to blurt out the wrong thing can make you cringe, we’ve all been there…

 

Although you can only imagine the colours of Frances’ clothing, her style is an indie mix of ditzy florals, check shirts, and layers. Her looks can definitely provide inspiration for daytime casual cool, and her shearling jacket would be a great addition to any winter wardrobe. Team with a messy bun and a strong brow for the perfect outfit for struggling with your quarter-life crisis…
