Margot At The Wedding
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 of a hurricane. From the minute she meets Pauline's fiancÃ© - 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.
