This film was probably among my top 5 from the New York Film Festival. Frances Ha is about being in your 20s (ha! even your 30s these days) and the uncertainty of it all. I found this film to be something I could relate on a few levels and I like to think a lot people will too. Being awkward and indecisive. It’s about not always getting your social cues right. But it’s also about being lonely but optimistic and about how much a friendship shapes who you are or want to become. There definitely moments that play on the sense of entitlement Frances might express sometimes but it’s not cocky. This film might get a lot of comparisons to ‘Girls’ for a lot of reason but it’s different in that Frances character still seems to hope for the best even if she is a little lost.

I really enjoyed the book and this first trailer definitely looks like it does the novel justice. The cast is pretty spot on and it just looks all around awesome. Definitely looking forward to this one.

Designed by Film.com’s very own Brandon Schaefer.
Official one-sheet I designed for the US release of “Berberian Sound Studio”.
Was not a fan of this film when I saw it at New York Film Festival last year but I love this poster.
Trailer - The Girl Most Likely To
Directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini. Starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Benning, Matt Dillon and Darren Criss.
This already looks like a missing piece from Bridesmaids. That’s not necessarily a bad thing since I love that movie but I worry it might be to similar. It looks decent enough that I will probably give it a view.

I had the opportunity to see this last year at New Directors/New Films. It was probably one the best and most original films I saw last year. Today it finally was official released. If this film is playing at any of the theaters near you PLEASE do yourself a favor and go see it.
Bourgeois - Phoenix
I am huge Phoenix fan and have been for years and I always love the current album better than the last. For me they are one of few bands that only get better with every new release. I must say when I first heard the track they released leading up to the album I was very disappointment and worried that this might actually Phoenix’s first bad album. For me Bankrupt! is still definitely their weakest album BUT it’s still quite good and how many bands can say that. This track is definitely my favorite and best track in the album.

Theatrical Trailer - The Bling Ring
Directed by Sofia Coppola. Starring Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock, Leslie Mann, and Gavin Rossdale.
This the second trailer and I am still on the fence. Being a huge Sofia Coppola fan and slightly disappointed by her last film I’m not sure what to think. I’m definitely curious though.
In theaters June 13th.
