Times and Venues:
SYNOPSIS: Marriage Story is Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach's incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. The film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver. Laura Dern, Alan Alda, and Ray Liotta co-star.
According to Indiewire, The power of Marriage Story stems from the way it transcends the simplicity of its premise, with writer-director Noah Baumbach matching the material for his most personal movie with filmmaking ambition to spare, and a pair of devastating performances from Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson that rank as their very best.
And from RobertEbert.com reviewer, Suffice to say that this is perhaps the most compassionate and smart film I've seen on marriage and divorce, elevated by Randy Newman's heartbreaking score, and precise craftsmanship.
BIO: Noah Baumbach was born in Brooklyn, New York. His films include Kicking and Screaming, The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg, Frances Ha, While We’re Young, Mistress America, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), and the documentary, De Palma.
