Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner / Fiction / English

How long can she put off becoming an adult?

Audience Award Nominee

In this deft comedy, Greta Gerwig gives a breakout performance as Frances, a 27-yearold dancer who, struggling to stay afloat after her roommate leaves their Brooklyn apartment, must try to find a place for herself, both literally and metaphorically. How long can Frances linger in the fun but awkward transition between a student lifestyle and adult responsibilities? A fastpaced homage to the French New Wave, a love poem to New York City, and a delightful personal portrait.
