Bernard (Daniels) is a once acclaimed novelist whose star has long since waned and now works as a university professor. When his wife starts to have success with a novel of her own, the resulting demise of their marriage has a profound affect on their two children. Writer/director Baumbach concentrates on characters and moral conundrums over melodramatic plot points. In doing so he brings a unique angle to depicting divorce on screen. An acerbic and occasionally kooky and brilliant work.
