LIVING A LAUGHING MATTER, US, 85 MIN
This delightful indie comedy proves whoever said life’s what you make it has got it all wrong. Life’s what makes you. Greta Gerwig stars as Frances, a lovable loser who sorely needs two things to go her way: somewhere to live in New York City, and some way to live in New York City. Throughout the film, her hopes of achieving either are amusingly forlorn. Anyone who has spent (or is spending) some (or all) of their adult life with no idea what to do next will love Frances like a long lost sister. Though she invariably cops the worst, Frances always copes the best she can. Directed by Noah Baumbach ( The Squid and the Whale).
