Margot At the WeddingClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Margot Zeller (Nicole Kidman) is a short story writer with a sharp wit and an even sharper tongue. On the eve of her estranged sister Pauline's (Jennifer Jason Leigh) wedding to unemployed musician/artist/depressive Malcolm (Jack Black) at the family seaside home, Margot shows up unexpectedly to rekindle the sisterly bond and offer her own brand of "support." What ensues is a nakedly honest and subversively funny look at family dynamics.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Apart from John Turturro in a cameo, all the characters are monsters and/or basket cases.
Fresh: There isn't a pleasant, wholly likable character in the cast. But you can't avert your eyes from it.
Fresh: Writer-director Noah Baumbach solidifies his standing as the modern bard of American dysfunctional families with Margot at the Wedding, but at the same time he's recycling material he's already covered, and covered more exquisitely.
Rotten: With superb acting and great dialogue, this acerbic comic drama has some excellent moments, but it too often feels like being on an enforced holiday with people you'd rather not spend any time with.
