Margot at the Wedding

Margot at the Wedding ★★★

Margot at the Wedding plays as a pretty good companion piece to Noah Baumbach's previous film, The Squid and the Whale, but showing that sometimes Mom (played here by Nicole Kidman) can be just as bad as Dad. Kidman and the rest of the cast (including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jack Black, and Ciarán Hinds) are all great as smart people with no better judgment. It is a little difficult watching these movies in sequence, as one can only watch frustrating people make bad decisions for so long.
