The Squid and The Whale

The Squid and The Whale, is an interesting movie that was entered into a New York independent film Festivle. It tells the story of the Berkman family. The parents of the family Bernard and Joan Berkman are professional writers; who eventually get a divorce.THey wind up sharing joint custody of their two kids Walt and Frank, who Joan calls "Pickle" and "Chicken." Many strange things happen throughout the course of this movie. Later on towards the end, we find out what the title of the movie means. The oldest son Walt mentions that when him and his mom went to the Museum of Natural history he was afriad of the Display of the Squid and the Whale in the mammal room.
I enjoyed this movie, because it shows us that every single family is not normal, and they have problems. In a way it tells you to respect your family, because they are the only one that you have.
