In this latest film from Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Frances Ha) Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson deliver some of their richest work as a couple whose once enviable marriage crumbles under the weight of mounting resentments and divergent needs.
Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) is an actor. Charlie (Adam Driver) is a director. Together, they run a New York-based theatre company. They’re also married and have a son. But Nicole is a West Coaster who craves a different pace and a healthier life for their family. Charlie can’t bear California for too long. Accepting a temporary separation while Nicole takes a film job in LA, the dissimilarities in their desires become an impossible crossroads.
A deeply intimate portrait of a marriage gradually unravelling, told with raw authenticity and exploring what it really means to break up, while desperately trying to keep it together.
