Marriage Story

Marriage Story ★★★★★

Fantastic. I haven't seen such a great depiction of a marriage breakdown since Blue Valentine. Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, especially the latter, both give powerhouse performances, and the supporting cast is incredible too (especially Laura Dern, god I love that woman). The film is not a particularly easy watch, and the bleak reality it depicts of a divorce where a child is involved is incredibly gut-wrenching. There are moments of beauty and moments of intense pain, and you feel like you are tiptoeing on eggshells much like the characters can do around each other. Neither party is perfect, and it doesn't flinch from showing this. Probably my favourite film I've seen all year.
