The Squid and the Whale
Cert: 15 Year: 2005 Length: 81 mins
With fierce insight and feeling, writer-director Noah Baumbach delivers a fresh look at the effect of divorce on children, in a movie where even the laughs cut to the bone. He sets the film in Brooklyn where he lived in the 1980s during and after the break-up of his own parents. All performances are flawless, but Jeff Daniels' portrait of a man trying to helplessly to break out of the cocoon of his own self-regard is a finely tuned tour de force and it represents his shining hour on screen.
