How did Nicole and Charlie end up at the point of no return? It depends on which one you ask. She’s a former film actress who gave up her career to live in New York. He’s a theatre director happy in his role as a father. Inspired by the American filmmaker’s own divorce, Marriage Story, harsh and bittersweet, is much more than a Kramer vs. Kramer 2.0. With its two outstanding leads engaged in a duel to the death, the film is a powerful and sadly dead-on postmortem of a relationship ground down by disappointment and frustration.

"This is a tough piece of work, steeped in pain that feels wincingly immediate (it’s based on Baumbach’s own divorce from actress Jennifer Jason Leigh) and unsparing in its willingness to observe, at sometimes startling emotional proximity, good people at their worst. This is the work of a filmmaker in full command of his powers." The Hollywood Reporter
"Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson are a couple who enter the divorce zone in a Noah Baumbach drama that's so accomplished it elevates the writer-director of 'The Squid and the Whale' to a whole new level." Variety
