THE SQUID AND THE WHALE
2005, Samuel Goldwyn Films, 81 min, Dir: Noah Baumbach

When writers Bernard (Jeff Daniels) and Joan (Laura Linney) agree to separate, the decision affects their sons most of all. Feeling the need to take sides, 16-year-old Walt (Jesse Eisenberg) and 12-year-old Frank (Owen Kline) both begin acting out in their own ways. The family’s fragile dynamic is further complicated by Bernard's and Joan’s attempts at finding new romance. Sweet and acerbic at once, this tautly written tale about what brings us together and pushes us apart garnered an Oscar nomination for writer-director Baumbach’s screenplay and Golden Globe nominations for Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney.


35 mm!

KICKING AND SCREAMING
1995, Lionsgate, 96 min, Dir: Noah Baumbach

For 20-something Grover (Josh Hamilton), everything is about to change. College is over, career prospects are slim and girlfriend Jane (Olivia d’Abo) is moving to Prague. Grover hasn’t the vaguest idea where his future is headed and he’s not alone; together, Grover and his friends digest the dissonance between the sheltered campus they’ve called home for four years and the adult world that lies ahead. Wry and realistic, this feature directorial debut from Noah Baumbach established his distinctive point of view as a filmmaker while winning praise from the Washington Post as a “hilariously insightful comedy.”
