Frances Ha (2012) Poster



Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Frances' parents are played by Greta Gerwig's real-life parents.
Was shot as low-key and covertly as possible on New York City streets, and was officially known as 'Untitled Digital Workshop'.
Greta Gerwig is in every scene of the movie.
Charlotte d'Amboise, who plays the head of Frances's dance company (and whose character describes herself as a former dancer) is in fact a well-known Broadway dancer, with such Broadway shows on her resume as Cats, Chicago, A Chorus Line, and Pippin. She is also the daughter of former New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques D'Amboise.
The bathroom scene with Frances and Sophie last 28-seconds, yet it required 42 takes to get it right. Greta Gerwig detailed the experience in a NY Times Magazine article in May 2013 titled 'I Know I'm Doing the Scene Badly, But I Can't Figure Out How to Do It Well'.
Director/co-writer Baumbach shot the movie in black and white to 'boil it down to its barest bones' and create an immediate "history" and "a kind of instant nostalgia.'
Contrary to the movie's improvisational feel, the actors followed a very tightly-written script with little to no deviation.
Greta Gerwig and director Noah Baumbach are in a relationship.
