The Squid and the Whale

The Squid and the Whale (2005)

Jeff Daniels makes for a haunting Brooklyn professor who's well past his prime,
and Laura Linney is his writer wife on the brink of stardom in Noah Baumbach's
honest look at the disintegration of a marriage. With their lives headed for
distinctly opposite directions, the two can't help but be acrimonious about
their impending separation. Unfortunately, their two children are stuck in the
middle of the emotional warfare.

My Two Cents: It's like a Wes Anderson movie, but with characters that aren't quite so detatched from reality. Some of them, anyway.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
IMDB Rank: 8/10


Robert's Two Cents: I thought this was great fun, but I kinda disagree with Drew. I think it feels exactly like an Alexander Payne movie...
