**Frances Ha** is the title character played by (Greta Gerwig) who shares similar characteristics as Andrée Heuschling, a struggling artist who seeks to develop as performance. Unlike **Renoir,** **Frances Ha** is filmed in black & white and contains no nudity.
As a dancer for a Manhattan Dance Company, Frances has enjoyed the Bohemian lifestyle. Now in her late twenties, Frances is forced to mature as her friends form families and her dance skills diminish.
With the black and white cinematography and Manhattan setting, **Frances Ha** is influenced by Woody Allen. Yet Frances is not another pseudo intellectual Catskills comedian, she is an endearing character who learns to embrace her California roots and artistic desires.
