Marriage Story

UNB_7530.nef Play Button


Charlie and Nicole’s already strained marriage is further tested when Nicole secures a coveted acting role in Los Angeles, despite the couple’s strong roots in New York City with Charlie’s theater company. While this narrative opens with the couple deciding to get divorced, director Noah Baumbach transports audiences back and forth through time to reveal the totality of Charlie and Nicole’s time together, from when they first fell in love to the incidents that dismantled their relationship. This nonlinear meditation on love and marriage reveals the darkly transformative nature of divorce. Introduction by Alissa Wilkinson (Vox)
