With the sharp, heartfelt, realistic script, the stellar performances by Adam Driver and Scarlet Johannsson, and Laura Dern, all will no doubt be nominated for an Academy Award.

...there's something more elusive here-the faint feeling of almost that lingers as the credits roll. It's a ... sweetness, not angry or vindictive.

If Marriage Story succeeds in achieving a rare emotional transparency, it is in large part due to the breathlessly calibrated performances of its two leads.

It may not always hit the mark, but Baumbach -- and the talented cast -- finds enough dramatic punch to leave an impact with a film that isn't always easy to watch but is certainly worth your time.

The best thing about Marriage Story is the humanity that springs from its characters. [Full review in Spanish]
December 9, 2019
Marriage Story is not an easy watch; it is frequently squirm-inducing with Baumbach, for the most part, refusing to take sides... but that's what makes it one of the most satisfying dramas of the year.
December 9, 2019
One of the most realistic and genuinely told love stories I have ever seen. Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson & Laura Dern are perfect.

Perhaps the only thing more difficult than watching films like Marriage Story is writing about them.

Marriage Story is a magnificent movie, perhaps the best of its kind since Ingmar Bergman shot his Scenes from a Marriage back in 1974.

With a persistent and frankly remarkable sense of compassion...[Baumbach elects] the more mature stance that there are simply no winners in divorce.

Though it does get ugly, it's also paradoxically beautiful in its raw sincerity.

While I remember more than a few laugh-out-loud scenes, I couldn't describe them as vividly as those ending in tears. Johansson and Driver have never been better.

It's good, but it's no "Scenes from a Marriage" or "Husbands and Wives" or hell, "Company," for that matter. It's just Netflixable.

One of the best films of 2019; A dose of heavy, yet effective, melancholy reality that is all well-acted and directed/written beautifully by Noah Baumbach.

Marriage Story is a poignant and heartbreaking portrait of love falling apart, fueled by powerhouse performances and a gripping screenplay.
December 7, 2019
A remarkable feat of raw-nerve acting, intuitive writing, sharp direction, and a deeply empathetic sense of humanity.

It isn't about the joys of nuptial bliss, but rather the throes of matrimonial disunion.

Those of us old enough to remember certainly have seen much of this movie before, complete with a child whose real last name was Henry. It was in a 40-year-old little ditty called "Kramer vs. Kramer," which went on to win a Best Picture Oscar.
