Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach directs this incisive and compassionate look at a marriage coming apart and a family staying together.
“It’s funny and sad, sometimes within a single scene, and it weaves a plot out of the messy collapse of a shared reality, trying to make music out of disharmony. The melody is full of heartbreak, loss and regret, but the song is too beautiful to be entirely melancholy.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
“[The] blend of tones, with near-farce and emotional brutality blitzed together, is pure Baumbach, and he dishes it up for two hours straight.” – Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
“A 137-minute depiction of a marriage coming apart in which unusual intimacy is created, paradoxically, by big and spirited performances.” – Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal
