In case you're not yet aware, we feel it's important to let you know about one of the most exciting cinematic developments of the young decade: Greta Gerwig is, like, a thing now.
Gerwig, of course, has been moving on up in the indie scene for the last few years, making all sorts of films that, quite frankly, almost nobody has seen. Still, she's been slowly building buzz as a sparkly indie princess thanks to efforts like "Baghead," "Greenberg" (also directed by Baumbach) and "Damsels in Distress," all of which impressed festival crowds.
But "Frances Ha" looks to be her official breakout film, as Gerwig not only stars in but also co-wrote (alongside Baumbach) this story about a young woman in New York trying to figure out this whole life thing. "Frances Ha" totally crushed it at Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival last year, drawing some of the best reviews of Baumbach's career, which is saying something considering the dude was nominated for an Oscar for 2005's "The Squid and the Whale."
So check it out. And we really hope you like it. Because ready or not, the Gerwig Era starts now.
