Elegant, eloquent, deep and heartbreaking, it is a film that will stay with you long after you've seen it.

The most entertaining characters are the two lawyers ... they're both just awful and they're in it for themselves ... I would happily watch an entire film or series just about [them] going at each other.

While uncomfortable to watch at times, the acting and writing in "Marriage Story" make the narrative soar. - Nick Boyd, BRWC

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver deliver a real and unflinching look into the theatrics of a struggling marriage. A tragedy, a comedy, and well-written portal into two souls reality

In Margot at the Wedding and The Squid and the Whale, Baumbach explored issues of marriage and divorce. But, until now, he's never created anything this emotionally powerful, so overflowing with humanity.

Baumbach allows us to get to know the couple better than they know themselves - that is, we get to know them through each other's eyes, as they expose those parts of themselves they haven't yet come to terms with.

Marriage Story perfectly shows the true, messy side of divorce. The entire cast hits it out of the park with their performances -- and you will feel for both Charlie & Nicole.

Traveling along the path forged by a film like Kramer vs. Kramer this is another chapter in the story of marriage.

The film is stronger in its more sincere moments and weaker where Baumbach tries to push supposed truisms through gurning conceits.

Marriage Story drops Baumbach's trademark comedic quirkiness and embraces a much more melancholic tone in this raw and intimate character study of two individuals.

Sharp but humane, gorgeously acted, the new movie might inspire you to rewatch that other great divorce drama, Kramer vs. Kramer. That's not such a bad takeaway.

Marriage Story, through its overwhelming specificity, feels profound and focused in a way that resists any external flattening of its value.
