Audience Reviews for Marriage Story

  • Jul 17, 2020
    Considering the painful subject matter and some truly awful situations the characters find themselves in, I found this movie – for the most part –hilarious and uplifting. People make mistakes, but there is empathy and redemption for them.

    I realize this was nominated for awards. BUT. Whoever dreamt up this film was definitely not thinking about "entertainment." It's unnerving when the only comic relief you get in a film so brutal as this is just for one single second out of two hours of emotional bludgeoning, and it's a guy accidentally slicing his arm open. Normally I would never laugh at something like that. It really is unsettling to think that's "funny." I totally surprised myself when I laughed out loud. It's absolutely true that Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, and Julie Hagerty give strong performances, and this is a strong movie. I like strong, but strong when it means unrelenting brutalizing of the audience is not for me. What this really could have used is Wally Shawn moments of pure comic relief.

    Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson star in the original Netflix drama Marriage Story. Contrary to the title, the film is actually about a bitter divorce; while in marriage counseling Charlie Barber is ambushed with divorce papers and has to scramble to combat his wife's high priced lawyer who's coming after everything. Driver and Johansson give good performances and are backed by a strong supporting cast that includes Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, and Alan Alda. Yet it gets too dark and ugly to enjoy, as the characters just get meaner and more spiteful. Marriage Story takes on some heavy subject material, and it's not pretty.
