Family is Filmic

The son of Village Voice critic Georgia Brown and novelist Jonathan Baumbach, Noah grew up taking things seriously. "I still carry the residue of the pressure I felt as a child to read and appreciate the right books. Growing up, I never allowed myself to read beach reading. I was always plowing through Ford Madox Ford's Good Solider or something I wasn't equipped to understand." While not about his own family, Baumbach's melodrama The Squid and the Whale explores the pressures of growing up in conflict and culture.
