    It’s too bad that the screenplay doesn’t match the beautiful music on show.

    April 20, 2015 13:19
  • Testament Of Youth

    While it’s beautifully crafted on every level, this familiar story fails to convey why its source material was such a pioneering work.

    Noah Baumbach dials down the caustic wit, but crafts something that’s as sharp and honest as his best work.
