The Squid and the Whale

A poignant comedy!!

Akin to Woody Allen’s movies, this one also explores the perplexing phenomenon of human interactions. It tackles the gloomy subject of divorce in the best possible manner. It never gets too sentimental, which is in contrast to Allen’s movies. The humour is brilliantly built into the storyline, it never appears contrived.

The characters are interesting, not very strong though and the cast does a pretty good job. The direction was also good….no complaints there. There’s a significant amount of cursing there so avoid it to watch with your children. Otherwise, it’s a great watch.

Happy Watching!!

IMDb-“Follows two young boys dealing with their parents’ divorce in Brooklyn in the 1980s.”
