The film captures with extraordinary immediacy the inner workings of the Berkman family in 1986 Brooklyn. Bernard and his restless wife Joan, an up-and-coming writer, have given up on their marriage. Their two sons, 16-year-old Walt and 12-year-old Frank, are left to grapple with their confusing and conflicted feelings. The experience is a tender, funny and ultimately moving coming-of-age for Walt and a tortuously premature one for Frank. The emotinal tensions and strains that emerge during this difficult perid for the Berkmans are given a remarkably subtle and nuanced portrayal as a family in transition learns to redefine itself. Writer-Direstor Noah Baumbach earned the 2005 Best Dramatic Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival for his heartfelt film about a family splintered by divorce. Anchored by an uncompromising performance by Jeff Daniels as the family patriach, the film also stars Laura Linney, Jesse Eisenberg, Owen Kline, Anna Paquin and William Baldwin. Produced by Wes Anderson.
