Marriage Story (15)
Dir: Noah Baumbach
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern
US, 2019, 137 mins
Noah Baumbach revisits the subject of divorce, explored so memorably in his 2005 debut, The Squid and the Whale, and the result lays claim to being his finest work to date. An exquisite and empathetic portrayal of the divorce proceedings between Charlie and Nicole, now living at opposite ends of the country, and its effects on their eight-year-old son, Henry, who finds himself in the middle of an increasingly vicious dispute.
