Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver
Director: Noah Baumbach
Synopsis: Prominent Stage director (Adam Driver) and actor wife (Scarlett Johansson) go through a stressful and challenging cross country divorce. Forcing both of them to make changes and alter their lives in the process.
Review: I truly believe this was the best movie of 2019, a complete rollercoaster ride of emotions. With Noah Baumbach at the helm this movie absolutely crushed it. With his direction and his ability to get the very most out of actors Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver everything seemed to click on screen. I also thought the whole interactions between the parties felt very real besides the over the top lawyers, everything felt like it belonged. Their child having a difficult time adjusting really helped sell the harsh reality of divorce and hardships of co parenting.
Favorite Scene: The scene between Charlie and Nicole, where everything finally comes to a head and they have an intense shouting match that ends with both in tears. Incredible scene, you could feel their emotion with every word.
Recommendation: This was my favorite movie of the year, it hit very close to home for me personally. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson have fantastic chemistry together throughout the movie. I would highly recommend this movie to all.
Thank you! This was an incredibly stressful week for me and I think it showed in my review. I appreciate everyone who stuck with it and gave it a chance. My next review will be much better.
