MARRIAGE STORY tells, in grueling detail, the story of how Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver) end their marriage. When we meet them—he's a theater director, she's the star performer in his company—they've already decided that they are going to separate. There's bitterness between them, but the proceedings are largely amicable. They want to split everything evenly and avoid using lawyers. But when Nicole leaves New York for Los Angeles to shoot a television pilot and takes their child, Henry, with her, the vision of the life she didn't pursue in that city starts to crystalize. She hires a high-powered divorce attorney (Laura Dern taking absolutely zero bullshit), and sets out to get what she wants: to keep her kid in Los Angeles where she can be near her family and her ideal career. Charlie, meanwhile, is stubbornly committed to New York, the place they've resided for the majority of Henry's childhood.
Academy Award nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE) delivers a masterful film detailing the beautiful and devastating look at a marriage’s end. The script highlights how the very business of getting divorced—it's economics—makes people forget why they even loved each other in the first place. But the saga he's telling is not without hope. The messy experience of splitting up also forces his characters to live more honestly. It examines the breaking apart of these people before they put themselves back together in a slightly different order.
