Noah Baumbach is an Academy Award-nominated writer and director of the films Kicking and Screaming, Margot at the Wedding, and The Squid and the Whale.
A Marriage of Minds
In 2005, Baumbach embarked on a new project—his marriage to actor-director Jennifer Jason Leigh. That union soon expanded to a creative one as well when Baumbach wrote a lead role for her in his 2007 drama Margot at the Wedding. For Greenberg, Leigh worked as a writer, producer and actor. In a Filmmaker magazine article, Baumbach said of working with Leigh on Margot, "It felt just like an extension of our relationship. It was great to be able to go to work together and have the same project to talk about, and our intimacy only helped our ability to work together."
