So I just watched Frances Ha (2012) on Netflix the other day based on a recommendation from a few best of lists from last year and I must say, I enjoyed the message and vibe of this film. I had no idea what to expect really, but it is a essentially the story of a woman (Frances) living in New York, trying to get by as a professional dancer. It is filmed in black and white, which adds an interesting aesthetic but I've never really been smitten either way with it. It has some goofy, awkward comedy through, as Frances is what can be called a "hot mess" but always has the admiration and support of crowd (at least she always had mine).
It has a great message (and a refreshing one at that) that focuses mostly on the love between friends and how they support us through it all. The relationship is between Frances and her college friend Sophie. Both of them have interesting journeys throughout the film so I definitely recommend it as a hidden gem to all those Netflix bingers like me out there, if you're looking for a unique, original film to enjoy. Stream it today!
Happy watching, everyone!
