Marriage Story: Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson

Marriage Story

February 01, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson come together and then fall quietly, spectacularly apart in Noah Baumbach's bittersweet divorce comedy.


When a marriage ends, does it have to be a horror movie? Can it instead be one of the Best Pictures of the year? Noah Baumbach weaves his dark comedy with insight and compassion, following a New York playwright (Adam Driver) and actress (Scarlett Johansson) as they dissolve their once-happy union. Delivering moments of bewilderment, tenderness and loss, both leads earned Best Actor and Best Actress nods. Alan Alda, Ray Liotta and Laura Dern also provide terrific support, with Dern getting a Best Supporting Actress nomination as well. Hitting every note with the pure clarity of a bell, this precise observation of human behavior is funny, moving, and beautifully composed. D: Noah Baumbach, US, 2019,

Nominated for 6 Academy Awards including Best Picture.

“The melody is full of heartbreak, loss and regret, but the song is too beautiful to be entirely melancholy.”

The New York Times

“How does a small tale of love found and lost emerge as a major triumph and one of the very best movies of the year?”
