I'm irrationally excited to see a trailer for Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha, both because of the presence of star/writer Greta Gerwig and because I've been a fan of Baumbach's since his debut Kicking and Screaming. When Kicking and Screaming came out one still had to work to see an independent film one was interested in, and for me that work consisted of reading about it in a magazine and then waiting until it was in at Blockbuster. I don't know that I've ever been happier to see a movie make it to Criterion. Anyway, I look forward to Frances Ha and hope that Gerwigs involvement might signal an exciting new phase in Baumbach's career.
