Writer and director Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story is an emotionally crushing, yet very compassionate depiction of a collapsing marriage between two people and the irony of the realization that they must come together in order for them to go their separate ways. It also may be one of Baumbach’s greatest pieces of work.
Films about divorce rarely explore the heartbreak of two people who could not make it work with such honesty. But with Marriage Story, it feels raw and unnerving. The film moves like a stage play with its characters (played brilliantly by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver) pouring out their souls for all of us to see as they go through one of the most difficult points in their lives.
Nothing says bleak comedy like watching a marriage fall apart. And that is what we will get to see in Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a husband and wife pair that looks back on their past as they are going through a divorce. The film has already made the festival rounds at the Toronto Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, where it was met with unanimous praise. And now it will be heading to limited theaters before making its wide debut on Netflix.
But before all of that can happen, the streaming service has released a new trailer that gets deeper into the characters’ story, what they stand to lose, how they are coping, and so much more. Check out the trailer below.
Whenever there is a divorce, there is always two sides to the story. Often times these view points don’t match up, which leads to a prolonged dispute between the two parties. And Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story will take a look at how a lovely marriage can slowly dissolve into a bitter divorce.
The upcoming Netflix film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as the husband and wife who have their own perspectives on what their marriage was and how it fell apart. Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever, Azhy Robertson, Wallace Shawn, Martha Kelly and Mark O’Brien also star.
A pair of teaser trailers have been released for the film, and you can check them out below.

“Everyone deserves a defense… every person matters.”
Directed by Steven Spielberg (Lincoln), Bridge of Spies is a Cold War thriller based on the 1960 U-2 incident.
Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) stars as James Donovan, a Brooklyn insurance lawyer recruited by the CIA to negotiate the release of Lt. Francis Gary Powers (Austin Stowell), a captured American U-2 pilot.
Donovan boards a plane to Berlin, hoping to win the young man’s freedom through a prisoner exchange. His bargaining chip? Convicted Soviet spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), who Donovan defended in court years earlier. There’s one little hitch, though. Another American, college student Frederic Pryor (Will Rogers), has been arrested and is being held without charge by the East German police. Now Donovan must avoid being detained and broker one Russian spy for two Americans.
