Greta Gerwig - Los Angeles premiere of 'Mistress America' during the 2015 Sundance NEXT FEST held at Ace Hotel - Arrivals - Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, California, United States - Friday 7th August 2015
Loose and impressionistic, this beautifully shot film traces the career of a DJ who pioneered garage music in France. It's not an easy film to engage with, since the characters and situations remain stubbornly undefined by the atmospheric filmmaking. But fans of the music will find the movie mesmerising as director Mia Hansen-Love cleverly recreates the clubbing culture.
The central figure is Paul Vallee (Felix de Givry), who with his buddy Stan (Hugo Conzelmann) forms a DJ duo called Cheers in the early 1990s, adding a "French touch" to the garage sound and developing a friendly rivalry with their pals Thomas and Guy-Man (Vincent Lacoste and Arnaud Azoulay), better known as Daft Punk. Despite gaining success in France, around Europe and even in America, Paul struggles to make a decent living, mainly because all of his money disappears into his drug habit. So he constantly turns to his mother (Arsinee Khanjian) for help. But the real problem for him is loneliness, as his relationships with a series of girlfriends (including Greta Gerwig and Pauline Etienne) fade away. And nearly 20 years years later, he still feels like he hasn't grown up.
The film is assembled with artistry, capturing the period and settings with an earthy realism while the musical beats churn through every scene. And the actors deliver naturalistic performances that draw out a variety of intriguing themes. So it's deeply frustrating that the film's uneven structure develops so little momentum. De Givry is superb as Paul, but there's nothing about him that becomes terribly interesting apart from his musical innovations. He seems to just drift along, never steering his life in any particular direction, neglecting his relationships to concentrate on the music. Oddly, even his cocaine habit seems to barely impact him, apart from the realisation much later on that the world has moved on without him.

'Francis Ha' star Greta Gerwig made an appearance at the 2014 CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall in New York City. According to Vanity Fair, Greta was a huge fan of Rihanna's controversial see-through dress, revealing: 'She's my body icon, I love her ass so much!'

The CBS entertainment chairman simply said, "there were elements on the pilot that didn't work out," when explaining why the television network didn't order the new sitcom.
CBS shocked the television world on Wednesday (May 14th) when they passed on the much talked about sitcom, 'How I Met Your Dad.'
A pilot of the show, a spinoff of the hugely successful 'How I Met Your Mother,' was ordered by CBS last November (2013), but it creators, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, along with Emily Spivey, failed to captivate the network's executives.
But after casting names like Meg Ryan and Greta Gerwig, why did the pilot not get picked up?

What was wrong with the 'How I Met Your Mother' spin-off?
How I Met Your Dad will not be making its debut on CBS this year after the network failed to be blown away by the spin-off pilot that Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Emily Spivey presented. CBS ordered the pilot from the How I Met Your Mother creators before the long-running hit comedy came to an end this season.
Greta Gerwig Takes The Lead In 'How I Met Your Dad.'
The new concept sees Greta Gerwig play the equivalent of Josh Radnor's Ted Mosby whilst Meg Ryan provides the voiceover as Bob Saget did in the original show. The story follows Gerwig as Sally who recounts the tale of how she met her children's father throughout the proposed series.

Meg Ryan will voice Sally in the HIMYM spin-off 'How I Met Your Dad', what can we expect from the new series?
Meg Ryan is allegedly lined up to narrate the mother’s voice in the upcoming spin-off of How I Met Your Mother…the very originally named How I Met Your Dad. Following a very similar pretext to its predecessor, How I Met Your Dad is set to be told from the mother’s point of view, re-telling the story of how she met her children’s father. We get that it's a very clever concept, but surely once it's been done, it's been done? Next thing someone will be rewriting Breaking Bad with a female English teacher lead, with a young Jessica Pinkman helping her mass produce some kind of pink crystally drug. Or even just combine the two shows into one: How I Met Your Breaking Bad.
When Harry Met Sally actress Meg Ryan will lend her voice to Sally AKA the mother
In the original series of HIMYM, which recently ended, Bob Saget provided the voice of the father. Ryan’s role will allegedly mirror Saget’s, meaning that each week we will hear her character Sally recount a story which led her to eventually meeting the father of her children. Despite lending his voice to How I Met Your Mother, Saget himself never actually appeared on the show. The role of Ted was instead played by Josh Radnor, who was the ‘father’ right up until the final episode of the series.

Take note 'How I Met Your Mother' creators, making a spin-off sucessful isn't as easy as it looks.
With the news that television’s latest spin off ‘How I Met Your Dad’ has cast Greta Gerwig in the lead, the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ spin off might have a chance at being a successful example of the genre. However the writers and producers may want to look to a few other examples to see how to do the tricky spin off, right and wrong.
Frasier remains one of the greatest sitcoms of all time.
