From Frances Ha (dir. Noah Baumbach, 2012). Frances (Greta Gerwig) is about to fly to Paris for two days. She thinks that she should read Proust: “Sometimes it’s good to do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it.” Caroline (Maya Kazan) is skeptical:
“Proust is pretty heavy.”Frances packs the Lydia Davis translation of Swann’s Way.
”Yeah, but it’s worth it, I hear.”
“No, I meant the book, carrying it on the plane.”
