DIRECTOR Noah Baumbach
CAST Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Alan Alda
An elegant and beautifully acted film which follows the building and then breakdown of the marriage of Nicole and Charlie (Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver).
Noah Baumbach’s most personal film to date tells the story of the unravelling of the marriage of Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver). The elegant narrative goes back and forth through time, showing how the pair fell in love and built a life together alongside a detailed, blow-by-blow chronicle of their marital dismantling. The intelligent script and complex characters make this a compassionate, even-handed film that will stay with you. Grab a rare chance to see this on the big screen.
(2019 USA 137 mins)
This unflinchingly granular story of exactly what happens when a marriage ends manages to treat both its parties with fairness and empathy … Driver and Johansson give performances as precise and powerful as any two you’ll see on screen this year … The biggest surprise, however, is the film’s thick seam of humour. This is a movie that resists the darkness of the subject through a light, zippy script that delivers more zingers than many of the out-and-out comedies put out this year … The laughter lending a wonderful levity to the sadness that sticks. Terri White, Empire
