Director: Noah Baumbach
Stars: Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney, Jesse Eisenberg, Owen Kline, Anna Paquin, William Baldwin
Jesse Eisenberg shines as a teenager dealing with the divorce of his parents in Park Slope, Brooklyn in the 1980s. Partly based on director Baumbach's life, the film effectively (and often comically) captures how familial strife has repercussions on every member of the clan. Special props to Billy Baldwin for his hilarious portrayal of a libidinous tennis instructor.
