    Good script, not for everyone

    Noah Baumbach writes another novelistic script where character takes precedence over plot, and real life takes precedence over standard movie cliches. Margot might be difficult to like, but she is nonetheless compelling, and heads an interesting group of well-rounded characters.

    This Movie Was Stupid

    'Stupid' was all Nicole Kiddman's character could say about anything. Most of the scenes took place in the dark, making my nicely light living room enjoy the movie that much more. I was truly disappointed.
