“From the narrative structure of a divorce I was able to tell the story of a marriage”: these are the words through which Noah Baumbach describes the starting point of Marriage Story, in competition at the 76th Venice Film Festival. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson focus on explaining two very symbolic and yet delicate moments in the film, when their couple is really dissolving. The details are the key to understand their characters and make the audience feel like they know them. Laura Dern plays the wife’s lawyer in the film and Baumbach gifts her with one of the best speeches/lines in cinema so far. Laura’s presence through her character is a statement that women can have it all or at least can try to achieve this completion.

Marriage Story is an incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together.
