Centrepiece Gala: Frances Ha

One of the year’s most joyous film experiences, Frances Ha sees Noah Baumbach (The Squid & The Whale, Greenberg) return to his indie roots. Greta Gerwig (co-writer) plays Frances, a 27 year old would-be dancer, struggling to build a career for herself in New York City. When her best friend Sophie moves out, Frances finds herself on the street and looking for a new place in the world as well as a new apartment. Negotiating failed romances, job interviews and the judgements of others, this is an offbeat ode to the spirit of its lead character in this coming of age story.

Tickets available from the Hackney Picturehouse website here.
