Netflix's 'Marriage Story' offers a fresh new take on life after divorce and the joy of staying together as a family
The new Netflix drama movie based on an exhausting coast-to-coast divorce that pushes a couple to their individual and creative limits
There have been many movies that have played with the themes of marriage, divorce, and relationships, but 'Marriage Story' promises to put a new and fresh spin to the everyday routines of a marriage-divorce relationship. The 'Marriage Story' is an upcoming drama film written and directed by Noah Baumbach. Featuring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, the movie will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August 2019.
An incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together is the premise of this modern look at the institute of marriage. The movie follows the life of a couple, though divorced, still decide to carry on living together as a family for the sake of their child.
Charlie (Adam Driver), a stage director, and his actor wife Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) struggles through an exhausting, coast-to-coast split that pushes them to their individual and creative limits. The marriage between the two core characters ends due to indifferences in opinion and clashes in thought.
Their conflicts are akin to the ideal couple scenarios, where the two partners do not agree on the same things making room for disputes. The two also try hard to make things work but finally decide to apply for a divorce. While that takes its own course of time, they decide to live under the same roof to keep their family complete for their child.
This movie's storyline is strongly connected to director Noah Baumbach's own life. He has reportedly tried to convey the emotions and turmoils he went through as a child when his parents got a divorce.
Baumbach said in an interview with IndieWire, "Because I've gone through a divorce and also been through it as a child, there are things from my experience that, of course, I could draw from."
He also carries on to reveal that the plot of 'Marriage Story' was the kind of turn of events he would have expected to happen to him when his parents went through their divorce. In this new drama, the parents try to get a divorce while trying to live together in harmony for the happiness and satisfaction of the child. Divorce is such a traumatic experience to go through which makes the plot behind Baumbach's upcoming movie even more relatable to the Netflix audience.
The Netflix movie will bring out a stronger understanding of the bond of marriage and how separation can have negative effects that takes a toll on the lives of the family more than the couple themselves.
