Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine84 - It's similar to Frances Ha in that it once again explores the desperation felt by some women nearing 30 or in their early 30's who haven't quite found their place yet. Their lives aren't settled, a lot centers around finances or lack of them, and trying to hold on to the belief they'll someday get it together, meet the right guy, be a success, and really start living, rather than constantly reaching and looking. All themes of which I can relate, all too well. 30 seems to soon to feel this degree of desperation, but perhaps if I had panicked much earlier, my reaching and looking days could be a thing of the past.
