The Squid and The Whale

Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney and Anna Paquin lead off the cast of this Sundance award-winning kitchen sink drama/comedy based on the true childhood of writer/director Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming) and his brother. The two boys grew up in '80s-era Brooklyn dealing with the frequently contentious divorce of their overly intellectual parents. Daniels has the plum role, that of an egotistical New York college professor who can't see what a failure he's become personally or professionally. The film has its bitter moments, but finds humor in its all-too-human tragedy. 80 minutes R.
