Frances Ha, the latest film from writer/director Noah Baumbach, has been riding the festival circuit hard on its way to theatrical release. The movie had its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in September of last year, moved over to the Toronto International Film Festival, took a stop at the New York Film Festival, and most recently played during the Berlin International Film Festival. But its fest days are now over, and coming soon is its time in limited release.

IFC Films will be bringing Frances Ha to theaters in May, and while we saw the first clip from the film last month only now are we seeing the first theatrical trailer. Watch it below, courtesy of Apple.

Co written by Baumbach and star Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha follows the titular character as she finds herself drifting through life and in need of direction. She works at a dance company, but isn't really a dancer, she never really speaks with her best friend, and doesn't even really have an apartment. As described in the official synopsis, the film "explores New York, friendship, class, ambition, failure, and redemption." This is the second time that Baumbach and Gerwig have worked together, previously collaborating on 2010's Greenberg co-starring Ben Stiller.

Frances Ha co-stars Mickey Sumner, Adam Driver, Michael Zegen and Patrick Heusinger and will be in theaters on May 17th.
