Greta Gerwig Is Like “Girls”? “Ha!”

The NY Times gets in line behind the celebrants of La Gerwig, the star of “Frances Ha.” And does not fail to insert comparisons to Lena Dunham: “Gerwig’s character, Frances, is an aspiring modern dancer conducting a platonic love affair with her best friend, Sophie (Mickey Sumner), and the New York City — shot in seductive, “Manhattan”-reminiscent, digital black and white — they both live in. It is a deeply romantic film with no real romance at its center, a love letter to a city that is depicted, at times, as anything but lovable.”
