PREVIEW: Marriage Story

Until death do us part. That’s what most couples promise each other during their wedding vows. It is a statement, both uplifting and bleak. It expresses the hope of a forever while acknowledging that life has no absolute guarantees. Separation is always a possible outcome. But knowing that doesn’t minimize the pain, startlement, and humiliation when you have to say good-bye to the promise of “Always”. Marriage Story is about one of those good-byes. Except for Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver), it can’t be a farewell forever. For, they have a young son to take care of, a family that must be preserved even through divorce. With a star-laden cast and an award-winning director in Noah Baumbach, Marriage Story has all the potential of an incisive and emotional film, perfect to watch during this Thanksgiving break. This film is being shown at the State Theater. Tickets can be bought online or at the box office ($8.50 with a student ID).
