"Frances Ha" was off to a stellar start this weekend for IFC Films. The Noah Baumbach directed film -- which stars and was co-written by Greta Gerwig -- took in $134,000 from just 4 theaters for a $33,500 average. As far as per-theater-averages go, that's the best for a limited release since "The Place Beyond The Pines," and the third best of 2013 so far.
