After watching ‘Parasite‘ last weekend, I don’t see how any film is going to top it this year, but if one film has a shot, it might be Marriage Story.
Noah Baumbach’s latest film stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a couple navigating a divorce.
Driver’s Charlie is a successful New York City theater director, while Johansson’s Nicole is an actress with dreams of moving to her hometown of Los Angeles for a chance to escalate her career. The two have a young son, played by Azhy Robertson.
The movie has premiered at multiple festivals and has been getting rave reviews from critics. It has a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and most critics believe Driver and Johansson will receive Oscar nominations for their performances.
They also say it’s Noah’s best film, which is saying a lot because he’s wrote and/or directed some pretty great films, including The Meyerowitz Stories, Frances Ha, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Marriage Story will hit select theaters November 6, before hitting the Netflix platform on December 6.[mashshare]
