Margot at the Wedding (2007) Poster

Trivia

Originally titled "Nicole at the Beach", as a tribute to Éric Rohmer, the title was changed when Nicole Kidman was cast.
Nicole Kidman, Jack Black and Jennifer Jason Leigh moved in together during filming, because they wanted to perfect their roles as a dysfunctional family
For the sequence where Margot climbs the tree, Nicole Kidman refused to be replaced by a stunt-woman or use a ladder. She even made it to the top of the tree before the camera was ready to film.
Jennifer Jason Leigh and director Noah Baumbach were married by the time of filming. This was their first collaboration.
The cinematographer, Harris Savides, used old lenses and shot mostly in natural light to get the dim, ominous look of the film.
Several outlets claimed that the character of Claude was an autobiographical figure of director Noah Baumbach. However, he denies this and claims he identifies more with Margot and had a lot of empathy for her.
The movie spontaneously went into pre-production the day after Nicole Kidman first read the script, because she called up Noah Baumbach and was eager to star in the film. Baumbach said he was spoiled by Kidman and getting her involved was the easiest casting he's ever done.
Noah Baumbach considered finding another location for the production, because he feared the tree would be seen as symbolic of a "family tree".
