WITH: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda, Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever, Azhy Robertson
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach directs this incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. At turns funny, at other painful, Marriage Story is a perfect vehicle for the two leads: Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as a couple embroiled in a bitter bicoastal divorce. With echoes of Ingmar Bergman, this is arguably Baumbach's finest film to date, a hit on the festival cicruit and outstanding reviews from the critics.
