'Frances Ha' -- 3 1/2 stars

R; 1:26 running timeDirector and co-writer Noah Baumbach's beguiling new picture, stars Greta Gerwig (they're a couple in real life) as a 27-year-old New Yorker originally from Sacramento. Like thousands of others in the city, she's pursuing an artistic life at her own unpredictable speed, with dubious financial results. She's an apprentice at a struggling dance company and between relationships. One of the roommates she acquires in "Frances Ha" pronounces this big, beautiful dork of a woman "undateable," which is casually undermining and sort of ridiculous as friendly insults go. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "Frances Ha" movie review
