Marriage Story

Marriage Story
Oscar buzz already abounds for actors Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, who star as the troubled married couple in writer-director Baumbach’s heartbreaking account of a divorce. They topline a formidable cast that includes Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda, Julie Hagerty, and Merritt Wever. Much as Baumbach’s commercial breakout “The Squid and The Whale” was inspired by his parents failed marriage, the new film reflects on the filmmaker’s own split from former wife Jennifer Jason Leigh, and has been compared to Ingmar Bergman’s “Scenes from a Marriage” for its unsparing detail of the most painful moments.

Of course, the film is other things, too, its volatile emotional terrain navigated with grace, humor, vulnerability and humanity by the gifted leads, guided by Baumbach, whose work has been hailed as a career best. “‘Marriage Story’ sees the end of a marriage as cause for both mourning and bittersweet comedy,” writes critic Alissa Wilkinson at Vox. “The relationship is changing, but not ending. And the evolution is something to behold. To get a story like this right requires a sense of the comical and the absurd along with the devastating — and ‘Marriage Story’ delivers.”
