Adam Driver and Noah Baumbach are teaming up again for a new black comedy called White Noise. This has no connection to the 2005 Michael Keaton movie of the same title.

Driver and Baumbach had worked together on Marriage Story, which personally I couldn’t finish. According to the synopsis, White Noise:

“Dramatizes a contemporary American family’s attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world.”

Driver and his wife, played by Greta Gerwig, have to try and deal with their family issues while a local disaster is taking place in their town. The blurb from Netflix says:

“At once hilarious and horrifying, lyrical and absurd, ordinary and apocalyptic, White Noise dramatizes a contemporary American family’s attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world.”

The cast for White Noise is Driver, Gerwig, Raffey Cassidy, Don Cheadle, Jodie Turner-Smith, Lars Eidinger, Andre 3000, and Gideon Glick. It is written and directed by Baumbach, based on the book by Don DeLillo.

Personally, I find Baumbach a little too pretentious to enjoy his work. The same can be said for Gerwig as a writer and director, I haven’t seen Lady Bird, but her Little Women was just another boring remake.

White Noise will be streaming on Netflix 30th Dec.
