The state of the neurotic love story would not be the same without the New York-bred director Noah Baumbach. Over the course of his 25-year career, the modest, somewhat mousy director has brought us Kicking and Screaming, a film about preppy college grads attempting adulthood; Mr. Jealousy, a story about a paranoid writer on the hunt to find love; and The Squid and the Whale, a black comedy about crusty geezers breaking up. Baumbach’s films, filled with wit and candor, shed a light on the inner lives of the urban intelligentsia, the kind of people who spend their weekend hours in secondhand bookstores.
