MARRIAGE STORY is Academy Award nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach's incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. The film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver. Laura Dern, Alan Alda, and Ray Liotta co-star.

A stage director and his actor wife struggle through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes.

Common Sence Media: age 16+

Parents need to know that writer/director Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story is a drama that could be considered a "divorce procedural." It specifically explores how the legal system distorts the good intentions of a couple trying to end their marriage amicably. Despite their personal tension -- and one epic argument during which a fist goes through a wall -- Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie Barber (Adam Driver) continually try to do what's best for their 8-year-old son. The movie is really all about about how divorce affects parents' relationship with their child(ren). Expect extremely strong language; the whole family, including the son, curses a lot ("f--k," "s--t," and many more), and explicit language is used to describe a sex act. Adults also do a lot of drinking, mostly in social situations, and Charlie smokes.
