What about the freaking cat? It is the only character in the whole damn movie I cared. Oh, and Sophie - I hope you ran very fast.

It is strange that so many people and journalists raved about this. It is just emotionally tired and full of clich├ęs about the academic and pompous liberal Park Slope. The director of the unresolved issues are quite painfully displayed. Type. Therapy. Get.

The father is a dimension that is not interesting to watch. However, the mother - who is clearly sympathetic to the parents in the eyes of the director - is horrendous. Because her husband is so terrible that it is permissible to cheat on him for years? And nobody thinks that it is equally responsible for leaving Frank alone for the weekend? He is a child - what if her husband had his heart attack then? And when will she could not wait 30 minutes to show your ex? Furthermore, the savings that he wanted joint custody, because it is cheap "schedule of maximum disclosure crippling emotional? Nice. Overall, a family full of miserable people all deserve each other.

Do not be fooled by the stated duration: half an hour of torture may seem like five.
An almost perfect film. Everybody needs to see this.

Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney are both extraordinary. Factor in the outcome of Jesse Eisenberg and Owen Kline and this may be the most well-acted movie I've seen in a couple of years.

I've never enjoyed watching Daniels. Kline, hit a house in his first managerial role. Eisenberg's performance is Oscar worthy. (Yes, Daniels is great, but Eisenberg won a Best Actor nomination at this one!)

What I liked most of all is how very, very delicate mood is bright woven throughout this film incredibly sad.

Greetings to Noah Baumbach for putting his life on paper and let the actors tell the terrible story.

That's it. Thanks for reading.
