Marriage Story is one of Baumbach's most mature works. Moving away from his eccentric characters (like Greenberg or Frances Ha), keeping his focus on interpersonal and family relationships [Full review in Spanish]
July 1, 2020
Full of life and humanity, and probably a lot funnier than you'd expect.
June 19, 2020
It's an arduous journey that's sometimes difficult to watch, but it provides genuine catharsis.
June 16, 2020
Driver is compelling as a man who experiences the breakup as both an emotional and a physical gut-punch.
May 9, 2020
Good script, good performances; the whole thing comes together really very well [and] the supporting performances really balance the tone effectively.
May 1, 2020
Baumbach's film is sincere, even affectionate, as it follows this disintegrating family unit.
April 30, 2020
Driver and Johansson truly make the most of their performances, creating real, flesh and blood characters that are as definitive to cinema as Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs. Kramer.
April 8, 2020
A contemplative and heartbreaking depiction of marriage sacrificed at the altar of ego.
March 29, 2020
One particularly symbolic scene involving Driver and a small key-chain blade says more about the nature of bad divorces than most films on the subject.
March 9, 2020
This haunting portrait of a marriage falling apart has a realistic, yet pensive approach.
March 2, 2020
Baumbach's approach to the challenge of representing marriage and divorce is to treat both as absurdities. His film, though heavy and at times heart-wrenching, leans heavily into comedy -- self-deprecating and humiliating at times, but no less funny.

Baumbach approximates it well, but never quite achieves Bergman's mastery of interior drama.
February 22, 2020
Unlike Kramer Vs. Kramer, which clearly favors Dustin Hoffman's predicament, there aren't any villains in Marriage Story (unless you count the lawyers). In Noah Baumbach's universe, both parties lose something precious.
February 17, 2020
An endearing and extremely dramatic "love gone awry" story that feels very relevant to today's disconnected society. [Full review in Spanish].
February 14, 2020
The film captures a palpable love gone awry with a young boy caught in the crossfire. It's a telling, emotionally devastating, yet somehow cathartic work.
February 14, 2020
Baumbach is an expert farceur.
February 13, 2020
"Cries easily in movies..." wholly and accurately describes my own experience watching this film.
February 11, 2020
It's wise and emotionally battering, but it never forgets to be crazily funny and doesn't pander. Beautiful, heartbreaking stuff.
February 4, 2020
MARRIAGE STORY breathes life into the hardships of having a parter in your life. It's a wonderful film that reveals intimate parts of our lives we may have trouble articulating. It may be a bit uncomfortable, but that's life.
February 3, 2020
Probably should have been called Divorce Story, but that wouldn't look as welcoming on the marquee!
