Reel Deal IV - The Squid and the Whale

THE REEL DEAL: Plumbing the Depths of Recent Award-Winning Films

“Filmmaking, film analysis and psychoanalytic work operate in the area of insight and of the gradual releasing of awareness from unawareness” – Andrea Sabbadini

Each film in the series will be shown in its entirety.  An interactive panel discussion consisting of an academic, a film theorist and a psychoanalyst will follow the showing.  Refreshments will be served.


FILM IV – “The Squid and the Whale”

“Steering clear of phony melodrama and indie pretense, Baumbach captures a crisis in one family’s life that, though it shakes the foundation, leaves all four Berkmans drifting toward highs and lows, unknown, each of them only dimly aware that, no matter what the movies tell us, we never really come of age.” – Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune.  Starring Jeff Daniels and Laura Linney; written and directed by Noah Baumbach.
