Greta Gerwig Goes Lovably Awkward In Frances Ha

Greta Gerwig Goes Lovably Awkward In Frances Ha

Greta Gerwig has gone from so-called Mumblecore actress, appearing in indie titles LOL, Hannah Takes The Stairs and Nights and Weekends to bigger fare by the likes of Ivan Reitman and Woody Allen in No Strings Attached and the recent To Rome with Love. But what most audiences may not know, is that she's picked written some of the material she's played on screen, including her latest Frances Ha, which she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach. The comedy is Gerwig's second match-up with Baumbach following 2010's Greenberg and the pair began bouncing ideas off each other, eventually creating the hysterical black and white feature that debuted at the recent Toronto International Film Festival and will be having its U.S. premiere at the upcoming New York Film Festival.

WATCH: Scenes From Stillman's Damsels In Distress Become Aitken's 'Weekend Lover' Music Video

Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress is about to get some additional international mileage thanks to the release of the  official video for Victoria Aitken's "Weekend Lover."  The video for the song — whic hit No. 10 on the U.K. dance charts and is now catching fire in Germany — is composed entirely of scenes from Stillman's movie about a group of trend-setting women (led by Greta Gerwig) at a boorish East-coast college whose romantic entanglements upend their friendship and their lives. ("Weekend Lover" is featured on the soundtrack of  Damsels in Distress, which was released on DVD at the end of July.) more »

Lola Versus: Drool Over Greta Gerwig As She Cries Over Your New RoboCop, Joel Kinnaman

Greta Gerwig and Joel Kinnaman in Lola Versus

Maybe it's because I've been obsessing more than usual over Joel Kinnaman since rolling through all of Season 1 of AMC's The Killing in a matter of days (I know, late to the party), but I dare any other Kinnaman-lover out there to watch the new trailer for Lola Versus and not fixate on the future RoboCop's 10 seconds of trailer screen time. Phew. That said, it's quite winning on its own, thanks to Greta Gerwig's charm and the hazy-golden gleam of the New York City streets she's traipsing along as she tries to figure out what to do after fiance Kinnaman calls off their engagement.

REVIEW: Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress Drowns in Coyness

REVIEW: Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress Drowns in Coyness

Damsels in Distress is Whit Stillman’s first film in 14 years: For those keeping track at home, that’s the equivalent of three four-year stints at an Ivy League college, plus one year of graduate school, plus one year of aimless backpacking around Europe bankrolled by daddy. How much you enjoy Damsels will depend on your tolerance for Stillman’s particular brand of duct-taped Sperry Topsider whimsy. It’s a comedy! It’s a musical! It’s a trip down memory lane to revisit the blissful confusion of our — or someone’s — college years! Damsels in Distress is all of those things and yet somehow less, as wayward as a second-semester junior who can’t yet decide on a major.

Greta Gerwig on Girl Crushes, Movie Sex and Going Mainstream

Greta Gerwig on Girl Crushes, Movie Sex and Going Mainstream

Last year's Greenberg may have marked Greta Gerwig's entrance into mainstream cinema -- when you come from the world of making nano-budgeted improvised films with your friends, a Noah Baumbach project is a big film - but 2011 will be the year the indie darling truly goes Hollywood. In this week's friends-with-benefits comedy No Strings Attached, Gerwig stands out as Natalie Portman's level-headed BFF; in April, she'll play the object of Russell Brand's affections in Arthur. And next month, she'll vie for her first major acting award at the Spirit Awards, nominated (opposite No Strings Attached co-star Portman) for her work as a winsome Los Angeleno in Greenberg.
