It's not quite as bleak as a Bergman film, although the late Swedish auteur is clearly an influence on Baumbach, as well as on Robbie Ryan's austere cinematography. But it leaves similar scorch marks upon the mind and heart.

With its stellar performances, Marriage Story will simultaneously move you and devastate you. Keep an eye on Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson come Oscar season.

This is a powerful performance by Driver. And it's evident that Johansson has matured as an actor - thoughtful and willing to go deep. But, everywhere in this movie, there are actors doing award-worthy work.

Noah Baumbach's masterpiece, a tragicomedy of human relationships that gets everything right ... every scene, and practically every moment, is simultaneously deeply sad and very funny. That's not just skilled filmmaking, it's a kind of alchemy.

You may find yourself crying for them occasionally; I did.

...has an ugly honesty you'll rarely find outside of the films of John Cassavetes.

It builds to a sensational, illuminating scene between Johansson and Driver, then slips when Driver, who does have a strong singing voice, uses the film to audition for a Broadway musical.

Exquisite, scorching and utterly humane.

Driver and Johansson... are heartbreaking. [Full review in Spanish]

A film that's as equally honest and transparent, and as bitter and witty as the performances at its core.

The film sucks you into the pain and misery of a separation protracted and complicated by the interference of lawyers, who are however not demonised and also fully formed characters.

The title is correct: this is the story of a marriage. It is a love story, just one viewed upside down.

It is funny, but goodness it feels over-long and presents a very American version of divorce that may not chime with audiences over here.

The film falls into the trap of often mistaking arguments for drama... That said, here is a list of some of the film's many attributes. It's raw, honest, heartfelt, compassionate, sensitive, tender, touching, witty and charming.

Marriage Story achieves that tricky feat of being both ultra-specific and universal in the feelings it explores.

This terrific movie, so honest, open, smart and touching, is a little gem.
