A TRIBUTE TO NOAH BAUMBACH

Since his 1995 debut, Noah Baumbach has proven adept at capturing two themes: hope and dysfunction. A continual collision between the two propels much of the drama in his work, buoyed by a deadpan wit and relish for human folly. KICKING AND SCREAMING, Baumbach’s feature directorial debut, finds college graduate Grover (Josh Hamilton) in a period of limbo, as he and his friends face - or postpone facing - the realities of the adult world. In THE SQUID AND THE WHALE, life is thrown out of kilter and civility strained when the bohemian Berkmans (Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney) decide to separate, leaving their adolescent sons (Jesse Eisenberg and Owen Kline) in the middle.

With GREENBERG, Baumbach embarked on a fruitful creative partnership with Greta Gerwig. Set in New York City and Sacramento, FRANCES HA follows a struggling dancer (Gerwig) as she navigates friends, family and the financial hardship that often accompanies pursuing one’s dream. In Baumbach and Gerwig’s third collaboration, MISTRESS AMERICA, a disenchanted college freshman (Lola Kirke) befriends a madcap Manhattanite (Gerwig), setting in motion a bittersweet tale of failure and self-discovery.

With his latest and most acclaimed work to date, MARRIAGE STORY, Baumbach delivers a delicate tale of divorce and the potential for love despite it. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson are the Barbers, a couple torn apart by buried resentments and unfulfilled expectations as they manage raising son Henry (Azhy Robertson) between two coasts.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise. Program notes by Adrien Verus.
