From director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg) comes Frances Ha (2012), a joyous rites of passage journey of one hapless New Yorker (Golden Globe nominee Greta Gerwig) cast adrift on a voyage of friendship, dating, dead-end jobs and dancing. To celebrate the long-awaited DVD and Blu-ray release of Baumbach’s sweet and brilliantly funny indie comedy this coming Monday (6 January), we have THREE DVD copies of Frances Ha to give away to our readers, courtesy of Metrodome Distribution. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Frances (Greta Gerwig) lives in New York, but she doesn’t really have an apartment. Frances is an apprentice for a dance company, but she’s not really a dancer. Frances has a best friend named Sophie, but they aren’t really speaking any more. Frances throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles. Frances wants so much more than she has but lives her life with unaccountable joy and lightness. Frances Ha is a modern comic fable that explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure and redemption.
