Frances Ha is a really funny and super sweet film co written and starring Greta Gerwig. The New Yorker review says it well. “With her exquisitely touching spontaneity and the spin of verbal and gestural invention with which she inflects the slightest interaction-and despite her embarrassingly impulsive self-revelations and equally awkward deceptions-Frances is an artist who’s medium is life itself.”
Another unbelievable performance playing at The Marsh in San Francisco is So You Can Hear Me written and directed by Sofiya Marinez. It is a one woman show taking on characters of her teaching days in the South Bronx. I had continual goosebumps and a little anxiety watching her transform into other people 100 feet in front of me. I was blown away.
