From Academy Award nominated writer/director Noah Baumbach (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 estranged 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 fiance – the unemployed artist Malcolm (Jack Black) – Margot starts to plant seeds of doubt about the union.

- " Baumbach's flair for dialogue and keen observation are still in top shape. " – Matthew Lucas (From the Front Row)
- " OK, this all sounds a bit tiresome and shop-worn… But, as well as being savage, it is also savagely droll, with several truly laugh-out-loud moments, and the performances are stunning. " – Deborah Ross (The Spectator)
- " As in the minutely observed anatomy of a divorce in The Squid and the Whale, the pleasures and pains of Margot reside in the smallness of scope and queasy focus on delicate family matters. " – Kristi Mitsuda (Stop Smiling)
