Margot At The Wedding

Customers who bought this item also bought
Margot Zeller (Nicole Kidman) is a short story writer with a sharp wit and an even sharper tongue. On the eve of her estranged sister Paulines (Jennifer Jason Leigh) wedding to unemployed musician/artist/depressive Malcolm (Jack Black) at the family seaside home, Margot shows up unexpectedly to rekindle the sisterly bond and offer her own brand of "support." What ensues is a nakedly honest and subversively funny look at family dynamics.
- A conversation with Noah Baumbach and Jennifer Jason Leigh
- Theatrical trailers

tone and style with Baumbach's amazing `Squid and the Whale', this is colder,
more distant and less moving.
That's OK, and it's still WAY above most of what's out there, but it's hard not
to feel there's a great movie trapped in this good one.
One thing that hurts is that (unlike `Squid') the acting is uneven. I don't want
to cast stones at a cast this talented, but it didn't always feel to me like everyone
was in the same film.
But this is one of those complex films I'll re-visit one day, and could imagine
liking more on re-seeing, being better prepared for it's difficult tone.
But I'm hoping that Baumbach -- who I think is talented -- never makes another film about these people again.
