Margot at the Wedding is a 2007 family drama exploring the difficult dynamics between Margot (Nicole Kidman), a successful but prickly novelist from New York, and her sister Pauline (Jennifer Jason Leigh), set to marry a directionless artist named Malcolm (Jack Black). Pauline uneasily jokes to Margot that Malcolm's main profession is "growing a mustache." The sisters have not talked in years and warily try to stay cordial in the week leading up to the wedding. Tagging along with Margo is her son Claude (Zane Pais), who forms an uneasy bond with Pauline's daughter, Ingrid (Flora Cross). During the week, buried family secrets are revealed, Margot tries desperately to talk Pauline out of marrying Malcolm, and hostilities escalate. Margo herself is going through a difficult divorce from her husband Jim (John Turturro), also a writer. Inspired by French cinema, Margot at the Wedding is a literate drama, written and directed by Noah Baumbach.
