In a career full of remarkable highpoints (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, FRANCES HA), here is another dizzying high from Noah Baumbach. It’s also his most personal film yet.

Nicole is an actor. Charlie is a director. Together, they run a New York-based theatre company. They’re also married and have a son. But Nicole is a West Coaster who craves a different pace and a healthier life for their family. Charlie can’t bear California for too long. Accepting a temporary separation while Nicole takes a film job in LA, the dissimilarities in their desires become a chasm.
It’s an economical plot, the gradual unravelling of a marriage, but the great pleasure – and agony – lies in the details. Baumbach is a master of understanding what makes people tick and of finding the bitter hilarity in even the most desolate emotional scenes. (source: BFI)
