Frances Ha


Do you think you have your whole life figured out at 27? No? Neither Frances Halladay (nor me actually). She’s a dance apprentice who lives with her bestfriend, but then her bestfriend decides to move on with her own life. Frances has to deal with a (some) new living situation(s) and no job security. Frances is not a total train weck though she has some moments that makes me have secondhand embarrassment for her 😀

I think it’s a movie that most girls in their mid 20s can relate to, that maybe someday we’ll get our shit together.

Frances: It’s that thing when you’re with someone, and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it… but it’s a party… and you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining… and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes… but – but not because you’re possessive, or it’s precisely sexual… but because… that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s – That’s what I want out of a relationship. Or just life, I guess.
