ONE BROKE GIRL
“Girls” meets “Fame” in “Frances Ha,” a film about a 27-year-old girl living in Brooklyn, who’s trying to make it as a dancer in New York City when the proverbial carpet gets pulled out from under her: She loses her job, her best friend/roommate moves out, and she’s left to couch-surf and sublet. This new indie from Oscar-nominated director Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale”) stars Greta Gerwig, who co-wrote the script, through a comedic quarter-life crisis. While the film features Georges Delerue music from French New Wave classics, the MGMT song “Time to Pretend” feels slightly more apt.
