Really enjoyed Frances Ha, a film directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Greta Gerwig. It seemed tailor-made for me as it was filmed in New York, the main theme is female friendship, the lead character is a dancer and “Modern Love” by David Bowie is even in it. I loved Greta Gerwig, who stars as Frances- even more so after listening to this NPR interview:

Over the holidays I saw Melancholia, “a beautiful movie about the end of the world”, as it’s marketed. It is truly beautiful, with lovely styling, cinematography, effects and an incredible musical score. Starring Kirsten Dunst. I found it to be ultimately about expectations.
Designers putting out collection after collection always feel the challenge of expectations —- customers and editors anticipate something new. The hidden gem you discover on your own is more memorable than the hotspot everyone insists you simply must go to.
One of my favorite scenes of the movie is in the beginning, when the bride and groom are in a stretch limo going to the wedding. The limo isn’t able to maneuver around a tricky curve in the road, and the driver is going forward, backward, turning the wheel this way and that, but going nowhere. The groom tries to help and gets behind the wheel, with the bride giving directions. Doesn’t work. The bride gets behind the wheel, giving it a go. Still doesn’t work. What makes the scene so nice is how they handle the situation—- with positivity and grace —- ultimately walking to the wedding heels in hand, laughing, late. Lovely.
