White Noise  (2022)

Rating: R

Release Date: Premiering on Netflix on Friday, December 30, 2022.

Summary: White Noise takes place in 1982, where Jack (Adam Driver) and Babette (Greta Gerwig) are the parents of a blended family, including anxiety-ridden Denise (Raffey Cassidy) and known-it-all Heinrich (Sam Nivola). Jack is a professor and one of the world’s experts on Hitler, but worries that people will judge him because he doesn’t speak German. Babette drops things at a moment’s notice to chase storms and seems to be forgetting a lot lately. Adding to the chaos is a major accident that will shake the very essence of their family foundation.

What to Watch For: The film is based on the 1985 novel White Noise by Don DeLillo. The book won the U.S. National Book Award for Fiction.

Word on the Street: Adam Driver is nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

My Take: Director/writer of the film Noah Baumbach has been nominated three times for his films Marriage Story (2019) and The Squid and the Whale (2005).
