ABOUT THE FILM

"Husband is in equal part hilarious, painful to watch and moving, replete (as it is) with middle-class/middle-age neuroses, hang-ups and anxieties, topped with a good dollop of love and affection."
—Business Doc Europe

DIRECTED BY:
JOSH APPIGANESI &
DEVORAH BAUM

British writer Devorah Baum has just published her first book – a guide to feelings like guilt, paranoia, envy and self-hatred. She’s off to the US to promote the book via public conversations with intimidating academics and writers like Zadie Smith.

 

With two small kids in tow, she’s stressed out. How can Josh, her husband, help?

 

Probably not by making a film about the whole trip. Before long, the feelings laid bare in Devorah's book get played out between them, revealing how much remains stubbornly unreconstructed in our supposedly progressive couplings.

 

A breathtakingly honest relationship comedy on the cusp between autofiction and documentary, it's a love letter to New York, literary life, and, er, modern marriage.
