MARRIAGE STORY
2019, Netflix, 136 min, USA, Dir: Noah Baumbach

Propelled by fiercely authentic performances, this incisive and compassionate portrait of a marriage breaking up and a family staying together plays out with subtlety and sincerity at every turn. New York couple Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver) have survived separations until Nicole commits to starting a new life in California. Charlie accepts the idea of divorce - but cannot accept the bicoastal custody arrangement that comes with it. Laura Dern and Alan Alda costar as the couple’s dueling divorce attorneys.


PATERSON
2016, Amazon Studios, 113 min, France/Germany/USA, Dir: Jim Jarmusch

Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey - they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: He drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry in a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani). By contrast, Laura’s world is ever-changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
