Noah Baumbach is the writer-director, and to watch such an incisive, deep-feeling script be given life by actors... at the top of their game is to rediscover movies as a powerful medium of personal expression.

Noah Baumbach will break your heart and make you laugh with his new film about divorce.

Marriage Story would never have made it as a must-see Noah Baumbach movie without Laura Dern, Ray Liotta and Alan Alda.

Marriage Story is full of sound and fury, signifying nothing short of a reappraisal of marriage and divorce and the casualness with which both are entered into.

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson's honest, intelligent performances inhabit the paradoxes of learning to let go.
