Marriage Story

  • 5 stars
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 16min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Noah Baumbach
  • Cast: Merritt Wever, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern
  • UK release: 6 December 2019

Nicole (Johansson) and Charlie (Driver) are a married couple separating, squabbling over their son Henry (Robertson). Baumbach’s approach is variously cool, clean, hilarious, devastating, discreet and confrontational; Johansson remains sympathetic even as she hides behind her lawyer, while Driver brings affable charm.
