A Cramped and Muted House of Blue LeavesLike its principal characters played by Ben Stiller, Edie Falco, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, this John Guare revival feels, for all its determination, caged in its own dreamworld.
Baumbach Is BackLike a blizzard in June, this unseasonable trailer stars no aliens, zombies, or superheroes. Instead, it announces upcoming Baumbach’s fall-film-fest-friendly feature, Margot at the Wedding. (See ya at the NY Film Fest!). And, yes, he’s back to strained family dynamics: two sisters (Nicole Kidman and Baumbach’s partner Jennifer Jason Leigh), one lovable-loser fiancé (Jack Black), and one floppy-haired son who has a Graduate-esque moment at the bottom of a pool.
