Director: Noah Baumbach
Runtime: 136 minutes
Noah Baumbach’s new film is about the rapid tangling and gradual untangling of impetuosity, resentment, and abiding love between a married couple—played by Adam Driver and Scarlett Johannson—negotiating their divorce and the custody of their son. It’s as harrowing as it is hilarious as it is deeply moving. ~ New York Film Festival
