We’re putting the family unit under the microscope this week with two films that track the downward slope of disfunction.
Up first is Noah Baumbach’s semi-autobiographical examination of divorce, Marriage Story, which finally hit Netflix and is certain to garner some Oscar nominations.
Then we take a look at Shia LaBeouf’s semi-autobiographical depiction of the pitfalls of an abusive parental relationship in Honey Boy… which will almost certainly be ignored during awards season.
Intro: 0:00 – 18:21
Marriage Story: 18:55 – 1:02:18
Honey Boy: 1:02:36 – 1:59:11
