Pillow Cinema: Frances Ha
Monochrome adventures and mid-life crises in Manhattan
It's time for a cinema revolution…and it's gonna be stuffed with feathers. Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the stunning Tudor home Sutton House into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags. They’ll be screening a great range of films, so come and join them for the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. Tonight’s offering is Noah Baumbach’s 2012 comedy drama, Frances Ha. Twenty-something New Yorker Frances (Greta Gerwig) is content pottering through life. That is, until and her boyfriend dumps her and best friend Sophie (Mickey Sumner) asks her to move out. Frances is forced to take charge of her future and follow her dreams. What follows is a monochrome adventure through Manhattan, which is as light and breezy as a walk in Central Park and just as refreshing. Wonderful stuff. "If films were gestures, this one would be a perfectly timed shrug, with the smile to match." – The Telegraph "With its swift, jaunty rhythms and sharp, off-kilter jokes, Frances Ha is frequently delightful." – The New York Times Certificate: 15.
