LIV­ING A LAUGH­ING MAT­TER, US, 85 MIN

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

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).
