Margot at the Wedding

Genre: Comedy, Drama; Starring: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Nicole Kidman, Jack Black, John Turturro; Author: Noah Baumbach; Release Date Limited: 11/16/2007; Runtime (in minutes): 96; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Paramount Vantage

Margot at the Wedding alienated many with its stinging look at siblings (Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Jason Leigh) reunited in contempt, and chilly as the winds that whip around their Hamptons cottage. But Noah Baumbach’s squirm-inducing observations about bonhomie mixed with casual cruelty — ”You used to be rounder, more graceful. You’re so stiff now,” says Kidman’s Margot to her son (Zane Pais) — truly hit home, especially when viewed inside one. Pity that the DVD has only one EXTRA: Baumbach and wife Leigh bantering on topics like Jack Black’s comic prowess. B+
