Numerous books and articles have lamented the choices twenty-something women have these days. A rethinking of the traditional roles around gender and sexuality has left our generation without a roadmap for relationships. Frances Ha is an eminently enjoyable rejection of the notion that too much choice can be a bad thing. Instead, Frances embraces the mess in her life and learns from it. Moving between jobs, relationships, friends, and apartments helps Frances grow up—choosing between options (and making frequent mistakes) helps her discern for herself who she is and what she wants. As a deep self-confidence replaces youthful enthusiasm, Frances finds her own way to becoming a smart, talented, flawed woman who will still dance all over New York with her friends.
