Film Stuff: Frances Ha

It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it- But it’s a party! And you’re both talking to other people, and you’re laughing and shining, and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual, but because that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end. And it’s this secret world that exists right there, in public, unnoticed that no one knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us but we don’t have the ability to perceive them? That’s what I want out of a relationship or just life, I guess.

This is the monologue I fell in love with. My acting classmate introduced me to Frances Ha from which her monologue is taken from.

I have a thing for these kinds of films, I don’t know what you call it – coming of age? I guess you can come of age at any age, odd as that may sound. It makes sense. I’m not going to spoil the film for you so I’m leaving these here to entice you. If you’re in your late twenties and feel like you’re just winging it – this might be a nice place to start.

Other movies that tackle with similar themes I recommend would be Tiny Furniture and Reality Bites – if you haven’t watched them already. Enjoy!
