DVD: "Margot at the Wedding"

I admired Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, about two children enduring their parents bitter divorce. Unfortunately I can't say the same about Margot at the Wedding. Nicole Kidman plays Margot, an overbearing, self-centered, spiteful writer who uses her family's experiences as plotlines, regardless of the consequences. She attends her sister Pauline's (Jennifer Jason Leigh) wedding because her former (and perhaps future) lover lives nearby. Of course, once she gets there she is openly repelled by her sister's fiance.

My rating: ** (out of 5)
