Synopsis:
A love story about divorce. A marriage coming apart and a family coming together. 'Marriage Story' is a hilarious and harrowing, sharply observed and deeply compassionate film from the acclaimed writer-director Noah Baumbach. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson deliver tour-de-force performances as Charlie, a charismatic New York theater director wedded to his work, and Nicole, an actor, who is ready to change her own life. Their hopes for an amicable divorce fade as they are drawn into a system that pits them against each other and forces them to redefine their relationship and their family.
Featuring bravura, finely drawn supporting turns from Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, and Laura Dern - who won an Academy Award for her performance here - as the trio of lawyers who preside over the legal battle, 'Marriage Story' (nominated for six Academy Awards including best picture) is a work of both intimacy and scope that ultimately invokes hope amid the ruins.

Very long and yawn inducing divorce story - Marriage Story review by JR

Spoiler Alert
09/09/2020

The film begins promisingly. There is the voiceover of a man and then woman and they are reading a description of their married life, and all they love about their partner. Then we cut to a marriage mediation session, and find these moving essays were a task so the session could start on a positive note. But the tone is set when Nicole refuses to read hers. She is an actress who is divorcing her meteorically rising star theatre director husband for what seems to be jealousy. At one point, she says she enjoyed being the star when she was taking the lead in his plays, but when she became just another member of the theatre company, and he became the star, she decided to take their child, leave New York for LA, and walk out of the marriage to pursue her own fame and fortune. They both agree not to involve lawyers, but Nicole soon engages a rottweiler lawyer, played by Laura Dern, and passively allows her to destroy the husband's life.

The film is far too long at 137 minutes and needs ruthless editing and more humour. The script feels rather stagey, theatrical and self indulgent, and culminates in a long cathartic scene where the couple lose all control and verbally tear each other apart. There are 2 Steven Sondheim songs inappropriately crowbarred in, although Adam Driver makes a pretty good fist of it.

Great Movie - Marriage Story review by JD

Spoiler Alert
09/09/2020

Cannot believe the other recent negative reviews who seem to have missed the whole point of the story. 

This a well acted, in depth study of the break up of a marriage, told with compassion and humour.

Great cast, great screenplay that is very rewarding to those who bother to stick with it.

Please watch it and judge for yourself.
