Free Movie Friday: Frances Ha Sept. 27
Charlottesville, VA - Piedmont Virginia Community College opens its Free Movie series with Frances Ha this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Main Stage of the V. Earl Dickinson Building.
Frances Ha is a modern comic fable that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure and redemption. Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn't really have an apartment. She is an apprentice for a dance company, but she's not really a dancer. She has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren't really speaking anymore. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness.
This small-budget movie, filmed in black-and-white, is a critically acclaimed collaboration between writer/star Gerwig (To Rome With Love, Greenberg), and writer/director Noah Baumbach (Greenberg, The Squid and the Whale). The film is rated R for sexual references and language.
The Dickinson Building is located at the south end of College Drive, and ample, free well-lit parking is located in front of the building. The Main Stage Theatre offers comfortable and spacious seating and is wheelchair accessible.
