Greta Gerwig


Actor, writer, director--Greta Gerwig has shone in multiple roles during her short yet profoundly influential career. This February, The Roxy celebrates five of the major achievements of this singular presence in contemporary American film. We're showcasing her star-making performances in Frances Ha, Mistress America, and Greenberg, and the masterpieces she wrote and directed, Little Women (closing off its phenomenal run at The Roxy with a week of 35mm) and Lady Bird. It's just our way of showing our Greta-tude. 

Frances Ha: Gerwig is radiant as Frances, a woman in her late twenties in contemporary New York trying to sort out her ambitions, her finances, and, above all, her intimate but shifting bond with her best friend, Sophie. Meticulously directed by Noah Baumbach with a free-and-easy vibe reminiscent of the French New Wave’s most spirited films, and written by Baumbach and Gerwig with an effortless combination of sweetness and wit, Frances Ha gets at both the frustrations and the joys of being young and unsure of where to go next. This wry and sparkling city romance is a testament to the ongoing vitality of independent American cinema.
