Jesse Eisenberg was the best actor in the movie,along side Jeff Daniels, since the beginning of the movie I suspect the Wes Anderson was involved in some way, because this movie reminds me a lot of his movies, in the same way jeff daniels reminds me of Bill Murray, the movie is great and is worth seen it at least one time, truly underrated

Noah Baumbach's semi-autobiographical The Squid and the Whale presents his parents as the two battling monsters, both New York intellectuals and writers (Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney), sharing custody of he (Jesse Eisenberg) and his younger brother (Owen Kline) after their divorce. Both boys immediately start misbehaving, but in very different ways, just as each chooses a parent they like better. As we explore each character's psychology, Baumbach never force feeds answers. We're presented with well-acted behavior and left to draw our own conclusions, which makes for a rich, detailed, textured portrait of a dysfunctional family. Most interesting is how it shows how attitudes and behaviors are passed down to children by their parents, the writer-director rather brutally honest with his and his family's cinematic stand-ins.

One of the most underrated movies of the recent years. I love how natural and real this movie is.

You want to tell me that in 1986 a full auditorium's worth of people didn't recognize a song from the best-selling double album of all time by one of the most well-known bands of all time that came out just 7 years earlier? Please.

Raw, raw, raw. Very realistic. It's not funny at all (I don't understand why some people describe it as funny).
Real consequences of 'fluid relationships', lack of boundaries, commitment, and love. Divorce experiences from the inside, mostly from the children point of view.

The more Baumbach films I see, the more I feel like I'm being punished.
