The new picture from Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story, Frances Ha, Kicking and Screaming), adapted from the popular 1985 Don DeLillo novel.
White Noise tells the story of Jack (Adam Driver), his fourth wife (Greta Gerwig), and four ultramodern offspring as they navigate the rocky passages of family life to the background babble of brand-name consumerism. When an industrial accident unleashes an “airborne toxic event,” a lethal black chemical cloud floats over their lives. The menacing cloud is a more urgent and visible version of the “white noise” engulfing their radio transmissions, sirens, microwaves, ultrasonic appliances, and TV murmurings-pulsing with life, yet suggesting something ominous.
