The Squid and the Whale - 2005

This is a fantastic drama about a family going through divorce.

The writing is a 10/10 so kudos to the screenwriter.

The acting is superb...ESPECIALLY JEFF DANIELS. His performance is rich and full of subtext. He should be nominated for an Academy award for this performance and if he doesn`t I`ll be really dissappointed.

The other actors are also VERY good most notably the older son who emulates and worships his dad.

As with most of the dramas that I like - this one too has no special effects and is not terribly glamourous.

It is all about the characters and the acting.

I give it an 8.5/10
