Actor: Scarlett Johansson

Marriage Story

Marriage Story

Oscar-nominated writer-director Noah Baumbach (THE SQUID AND THE WHALE) returns to familiar familial territory with MARRIAGE STORY, an incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up, and a family staying together.  The story chronicles the story of a stage director (Adam Driver) and his actor wife (Scarlett Johansson) as they struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes. With Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda, Merritt Wever, Wallace Shawn, and Julie Haggerty.

“Marriage Story” is an emotionally lacerating experience, a nearly flawless elegy for a beautifully flawed couple, a broken-family classic to set beside “Kramer vs. Kramer” and “Fanny and Alexander…” (Los Angeles Times)

“How does a small tale of a broken marriage emerge as a major triumph and one of the very best movies of the year? When it’s the best film yet from Baumbach with career highs from Driver and Johansson. It’ll take a piece out of you.” (Rolling Stone)

“Noah Baumbach is the writer-director, and to watch such an incisive, deep-feeling script be given life by actors… at the top of their game is to rediscover movies as a powerful medium of personal expression.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“The performances at the heart and center of it, though, fill it up to the brim. The results are full and lived-in. Johansson and Driver knew what they had to do with this elemental material and its wild mood swings.” (Chicago Tribune)
