Margot at the Wedding

Margot at the Wedding ★★2007 (R)

Writer Margot (Kidman) returns to her family's home for her sister Pauline's (Leigh) wedding to “artist” Malcolm (Black), but years of contempt, ego, and neuroses boil over among the sisters, their children, and anyone else who happens to be around. Writer/director Baumbach specializes in finding biting humor and poignancy in the struggles of flawed, overly educated East Coasters, but the nasty, petty characters he's created here are so hard to relate to that anything funny or moving is buried under an avalanche of meanness. 92m/C DVD . US Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jack Black, John Turturro, Ciaran Hinds, Flora Cross, Halley Feiffer, Zane Pais; D: Noah Baumbach; W: Noah Baumbach; C: Harris Savides.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
