Abstract:
"From Academy Award nominated writer/director Noah Baumback (The Squid And The Whale) comes a daringly funny and bracingly honest exploration of the tender, absurd and sometimes excruciating relationship between siblings. Played with an uncompromising fearlessness by Academy Award winner Nicole kidman and Golden Globe nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh, this nakedly honest film lays bare all aspects of the human comedy. Margot (Nicole Kidman), a savagely bright, razor tongued short story writer who creates chaos wherever she goes, sets off on a surprise journey to the wedding of her estrange and free spirited sister Pauline (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Margot, with her son Claude (Zane Pais) in tow, arrives with the force of a hurricane. From the minute she meets Pauline's fiancé - the unemployed artist Malcolm (Jack Black) - Margot starts to plant seeds of doubt about the union. What ensures is a frequently brilliant, squirm inducingly funny film."--Container.

Summary

Summary

Margot at the Wedding, writer/director Noah Baumbach's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated The Squid and the Whale, stars Nicole Kidman as Margot, a woman who travels with her son to the wedding of her sister (Jennifer Jason Leigh). The relationship between the two siblings has never been harmonious, a situation that is exacerbated when Margot discovers she cares very little for her sister's fiancé (Jack Black). Soon the high-strung Margot escalates a feud between her sister and the neighbors, and family secrets come to light, forcing everyone to rethink their various feelings toward each other. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
