Greta Gerwig Goes Pink on Poster for Noah Baumbach's 'Frances Ha'
Woo, what a poster! I'm glad we're finally getting something fun and exciting for this film, now to introduce everyone to it. IFC Films has unveiled their first official poster for Frances Ha, the new film from Noah Baumbach, starring Greta Gerwig. I'm going to get this out of the way up front - the film definitely has similarities to HBO's "Girls" and I'm sure they're going to sell it that way. But for good reason, because it's a great film, and it plays on the strengths of that show. I first caught the film at the Telluride Film Festival last year and enjoyed it; it's getting released this spring. It's a B&W film, so I'm glad to see them add some color.
Here's the first poster for Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha, starring Greta Gerwig. Originally from EW.com:
An aspiring dancer (Gerwig) moves to New York City and becomes caught up in a whirlwind of flighty fair-weather friends, diminishing fortunes and career setbacks, in the new film from Noah Baumbach.
Frances Ha is directed by acclaimed indie filmmaker Noah Baumbach, of the films Kicking and Screaming, The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding and Greenberg previously. The screenplay was co-written by Baumbach and Greta Gerwig. This premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals in late 2012, where IFC Films picked it up for release. Frances Ha will open in limited theaters May 17th this summer.
