NOAH BAUMBACH & MARRIAGE STORY ENSEMBLE
Writer-director Noah Baumbach is known for populating his films with a rich, eclectic mix of Hollywood stars and beloved character actors who vividly bring his characters to life. And with key players Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Merritt Wever, and Julie Hagerty in the mix, Marriage Story is no exception.
Writer-director Noah Baumbach will receive the MVFF Award on behalf of the ensemble cast of Marriage Story—with Laura Dern and others in attendance. Join us after the program for a celebratory reception at Intrepid Studios.
Returning to the themes of his acclaimed The Squid and the Whale, Noah Baumbach offers another alternately funny and deeply moving snapshot of a marriage in its final stages. With divorce proceedings in full swing as the film opens, a married couple (Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson) have promised to keep their separation amicable, but hurtful admissions and verbal spats quickly sour those ambitions. Baumbach surrounds his stars with one of 2019’s strongest ensembles to capture a kaleidoscopic tale of lost and found love (though maybe not in that order). US 2019, 136 min Director Noah Baumbach
