Maybe there's nothing terribly new in "Marriage Story." But it manages to make you forget that very fact, in surprising, affecting, singular and revelatory ways.

You can feel the actors' joy in playing these long, almost theatrical scenes -- and the director's joy in seeing them take the script to a new level.

A true masterpiece and a masterclass in filmmaking from Baumbach and his peerless cast who deserve every award coming their way.

An emotional, insightful and hilarious tragicomedy with great acting, script and direction. One of the best films of 2019. [Full review in Spanish]

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson's honest, intelligent performances inhabit the paradoxes of learning to let go.
November 12, 2019
The performances at the heart and center of it, though, fill it up to the brim. The results are full and lived-in. Johansson and Driver knew what they had to do with this elemental material and its wild mood swings.

Driver and Johansson give performances as precise and powerful as any two you'll see on screen this year.

Motherless Brooklyn is far from an airtight masterwork like Confidential, but for those looking for a neo-noir that goes down as harshly yet as satisfyingly as Sam Spade's favorite Bacardi, it'll deliver.

Essentially, this is about two people who deeply love each other but decide to hurt each other anyways. So it will also feel eerily familiar to most viewers.

The divorce part fades in and out of focus while the marriage part unravels in flashbacks. Sometimes they drag on so long you can't tell the difference. Still, it's intelligent enough to like it a lot in retrospect.

It's movies like Marriage Story that help us survive.

Baumbach has been writing some of the year's best scripts for years and Marriage Story only further solidifies his voice as an essential American storyteller.

[Baumbach's] latest, an at times joyous but more often frustrating and painful exploration about how the blind spots wired into our perception of the world have unintended consequences, is simply the best thing he has ever done.

Baumbach's main characters are written and acted straight as befits their personal integrity, but the rest of Marriage Story is done in a satirist's broad strokes - a penetrating, often inspired satirist.
November 9, 2019
An intimate tale of a relationship's collapse that also contains tear-jerking flashes of grandeur and sentimentality, Marriage Story runs the emotional gamut with ease and dramatic clarity.

WatchingMarriage Storyis a transcendent experience. I don't know how someone puts such an intensely personal story on the screen, but Noah Baumbach has done it in a way that pierces your heart. This film is a must see.

While admit that this a beautifully-written movie... I can't help but see this movie from this rarefied perch.

What I keeping come back to when I think about [Marriage Story] is just how human it is. It feels really lived in. You feel like you know these characters.

Noah Baumbach's excellent Marriage Story -- which is actually the story of a divorce -- revisits territory this filmmaker has explored before, notably in 2005's The Squid and the Whale.

A masterpiece.
