The Squid and the Whale get a divorce

This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, presented by The Prince Charles Cinema, our hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas head to 1986 Brooklyn and witness the messy divorce and attempted joint custody of The Berkmans in Noah Baumbach's 2005 indie drama THE SQUID AND THE WHALE!

It's produced by Wes Anderson, hence its last minute entry into our extended Anderson vs. Anderson arc, and stars Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney, Jesse Eisenberg and Owen Kline. The film put Baumbach on the map and would lay the foundations to all his works that followed. It also showed the world a serious, dramatic side of Jeff Daniels and properly introduced everyone to the enigma that is Jesse Eisenberg.

How does this pre-Marriage Story, marriage story hold up? Tune in to find out...
