Since making his movie debut with 1995′s acclaimed, low budget indie Kicking and Screaming, Noah Baumbach has built a reputation as a maker of witty, sophisticated comedy-dramas, populated by nuanced, fully-formed characters – always boasting strong performances. His films include The Squid and the Whale, Margot and the Wedding and Greenberg – the latter heralding his first collaboration with “mumblecore” actor Greta Gerwig. His latest film, Frances Ha, builds on this relationship – with Gerwig not only starring as the titular Frances, but co-writing the screenplay as well.

The story of a wannabe dancer in her mid-20s – in career and relationship stasis, whilst her best friends are moving on with their lives – Frances Ha is a warm, touching and deeply personal piece of work. Last month, the director was nice enough to sit down with What Culture and tell us all about it.
