'Marriage Story' Director Noah Baumbach on the 'Love Story in the Breakdown'
Filmmaker Noah Baumbach's acclaimed drama, Marriage Story, about the dissolution of a marriage boasts an A-list cast, a ton of advance awards buzz and comparisons to 1979 cinema classic Kramer vs. Kramer.
Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Endgame) and Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) star as a married couple with a young son, Henry (Azhy Robertson), who split their time between New York and Los Angeles as they attempt to consciously uncouple.
From the long-awaited second season of 'You' to Henry Cavill's 'The Witcher' and 'Fuller House's swan song.
"I wanted to find the love story in the breakdown," says writer-director Baumbach, who based the film partly on his own 2013 divorce from actress Jennifer Jason Leigh.
"Marriage, of course, also continues in divorce — you're married the whole time you're doing it. And when a kid is involved, marriage continues, in a sense, after the divorce as well."
