"A film of total freedom. Greta Gerwig is a revelation. Her Frances Ha may be the most hopeful, ebullient character Noah Baumbach has ever put on screen."
- Scott Foundas, Variety
"Sharp and witty...Gerwig's kinetic performance of the title role reveals her to be a nimble comedian, perfectly balancing mortification and bravado."
- Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Greta Gerwig's Frances is a convincing, winning creation, an earnest and awkward apprentice dancer struggling to find a foothold on the edge of adulthood in New York."
- Victoria Ellison, LA Weekly

- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"The style is observational, the drama is understated, and, when the time comes, it knocks you out with the subtlest of badda-booms."
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"The funniest and saddest movie Mr. Baumbach has made so far, and also the riskiest."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
