‘Frances Ha’ Trailer: Of Course Greta Gerwig Can Make Twenties Ennui Seem Charming

Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha

Surely, we’ve heard this one before – Greta Gerwig stars as a confused twentysomething, shuffling her way through life in big, bad New York City, along with her coterie of cool pals, all looking for some kind of life-changing breakthrough – but Noah Baumbach‘s Frances Ha looks markedly different from its genre brethren, if only because Gerwig looks so damn charming in it.

In Frances Ha, Gerwig plays the eponymous Frances who is, well, a confused twentysomething shuffling her way through life. Actually, she dances, because Frances is sort of a modern dancer – but, then again, it seems like Frances is “sort of” a lot of things. Will she ever figure it all out? Oh, probably.

Watch Greta Gerwig dance (adorably!) through her confusing life in the first trailer for Frances Ha, after the break.

Frances Ha opens on May 17th. [Apple]
