"The relationships that simultaneously tie the Meyorwitz family together while also tearing them apart are complex, yet entirely relatable," reports Jon Fusco.  "One of Baumbach's goals in the film was to tell 'a hopeful story about how parents define things for children.' In his opinion, the parent plays a particular role in 'creating a kind of rulebook and hierarchy about what's important and what's not. I just felt, with this family, art took the place of religion.'" To read the full article, click here.

"What's clear by now is that Baumbach is a master of family dynamics whose withering wit is tempered here by a warmth that makes the film as moving as it is brilliantly comic."
