About the Film
Writer/director Noah Baumbach has created a funny and moving semi-autographical tale of two brothers coping with their parents’ divorce.
Jeff Daniels plays a failed novelist and Laura Linney plays his successful writer wife. The two are always going at each other with the boys torn in the middle. The film is filled with strong performances and wry observations. Baumbach has an ear for urbane wit and mines the humor from every opportunity. The film was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Motion Picture of the Year.
Sensational – a remarkable film. – Los Angeles Times
