Marriage Story

"It's the work of a major film artist, one who shows that he can capture life in all its emotional detail and complexity - and, in the process, make a piercing statement about how our society now works." - Variety

"Marriage Story offers a tricky proposition. Come for the charms of Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson and stay for a thorough evisceration of both. At the start of Noah Baumbach’s latest, and best, film, Driver’s Brooklyn theatre director Charlie and Johansson’s actress Nicole are essentially separated – Nicole wanting to pursue her screen acting career in L.A., and Charlie wanting nothing of the sort. By the time the film cycles through their divorce proceedings –including what ends up being a furious custody battle for their eight-year-old son – Baumbach’s film will have you cycling through all manner of convulsions. This is hilarious, heartbreaking cinema – a work that will make you burst out laughing one moment, and leave you tearing your hair out the next. Audiences and armchair psychiatrists can spend all manner of time analyzing how Baumbach’s own split from his actress wife (Jennifer Jason Leigh) spilled into Marriage Story. Everyone’s time will be better spent, though, marveling at what a completely absorbing and devastating portrait of modern desire and responsibility the filmmaker has wrought." – Barry Hertz, Globe & Mail
