Frances is a character who’s definitely a woman, but her status is most important as a human rather than someone who’s either gendered or marriageable. I’m really interested in trying to tell stories about women that don’t involve romantic components. That’s so much a part of the way we feel about female characters and their needs that it feels like it’s built in — but I’d like to find a way that it’s not. There are so many more stories than that.

Greta Gerwig, on Frances Ha
