Chicago Tribune

Baumbach’s achievement stings. It also has the sureness of tone and direction of a Chekhov story.

Noah Baumbach has followed up his acclaimed 2005 breakthrough "The Squid and the Whale" with another wryly observed, giddily...

Margot is a fleet, strangely enjoyable film, animated by the acuity of Baumbach's perceptions and -- this helps a lot -- the frequent...

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Dissenters who see this film as a wallow in self-absorption aren't paying attention. Baumbach is acutely attuned to the droll mind games of...

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A broader work than Baumbach's last movie, and it's funnier, too, even as you gasp at the misbehavior.

For Kidman, it is a one-note performance dictated by the script. Leigh had more dimension to work with and gives the film's most honest...

By Claudia Puig
Watching this movie feels a bit like being trapped on a weekend holiday with an unpredictable and seriously unhappy group of people.

I recently saw this movie at the Telluride film festival. If you liked Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, then you'll definitely enjoy this dark comedy-drama! Go to the official website to support...

A gem.

By r.m.parker
Darkly humorous, fragile and disarming, this is the epitome of family dysfunction films. It is essentially a character study - a dissection of how a family can be held hostage by the temperment of a...

This movie is the absolute worst that Kidman has ever made. The director should never be allowed behing the camera ever again! Most of the scenes were so dark one could not see the characters. At...

Someone needs to hand out revolvers so the audience can all kill themselves for having wasted 1h 31m of their life that they will never recover....

Suffice it to say, nobody in this film (at least in the time allotted) ever makes it to the wedding. What transpires in little over and hour and half of time is a severe examination of two very very...

Margot shouldnt go to the wedding

By Pr0fessor
This was a very slow-paced, character study that while it has its moments, is not what I would call a "worth $10" flick. This is great for when you are at home, the writer strike is 6 months old,...

A terrible movie that was a total waste of time & money. Yes the cinamentography and the acting were amazing, but there was no plot, and it was REALLY boring and awkward. If I wanted to see art, I...
