Marriage Story (2019) is an American drama film written and directed by Noah Baumbach. It stars Scarlett Johansson as Nicole and Adam Driver as Charlie, a married couple brought together by their creative passions but presently experiencing martial difficulties. After their counselling breaks down their agreement for an amicable divorce also disintegrates when Nicole hires feisty divorce lawyer Nora (Laura Dean) and Charlie retaliates with his own lawyers Bert (Alan Alda) and later Jay (Ray Liotta).
Baumbach is no stranger to divorce, his parents divorce was the inspiration for The Squid and the Whale, and he wrote Marriage Story after his divorce from actress Jennifer Jason Leigh. It earned six Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and acting nominations for Driver, Johansson and Dern, who won for Best Supporting Actress.
Scores for recommendability and small screen were very high, only slightly lower for repeat viewing gives Marriage Story an impressive overall rating of 4.14.
