A love story about divorce. A marriage coming apart and a family coming together, Marriage Story is available to buy on Criterion Collection Blu-ray and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on August 24.
Marriage Story is a hilarious and harrowing, sharply observed, and deeply compassionate film from the acclaimed writer-director NOAH BAUMBACH (The Squid and the Whale). ADAM DRIVER (BlacKkKlansman) and SCARLETT JOHANSSON (Under the Skin) deliver tour-de-force performances as Charlie, a charismatic New York theatre director wedded to his work, and Nicole, an actor who is ready to change her own life. Their hopes for an amicable divorce fade as they are drawn into a system that pits them against each other and forces them to redefine their relationship and their family. Featuring bravura, finely drawn supporting turns from ALAN ALDA (M*A*S*H), RAY LIOTTA (Goodfellas), and LAURA DERN (Certain Women)—who won an Academy Award for her performance here—as the trio of lawyers who preside over the legal battle, Marriage Story (nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture) is a work of both intimacy and scope that ultimately invokes hope amid the ruins.
