Marriage Story Explained: Themes, Meaning and True Story

Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story is not a “divorce story.” It’s a story of a marriage as a whole, told from from the vantage point of its final days and honors all the good things that still remain between Adam Driver’s Charlie and Scarlett Johannsen’s Nicole. It’s ultimately an affirmation of love in all its messiness, complexity, and impermanence.
