    watched this for the third time today and firmly in the camp that it's absolutely terrific. so many incredible scenes. when he's cut and is laying on the floor hits me every time, along with the much more talked about scenes

    i get some of the issues some people mentioned here already but this honestly played me like a harp and i'd easily call it the best of the few movies i've seen from baumbach

    see ya

    As a child of divorce, the most relatable scene of this film was probably near the end when Adam Driver walks into Scarlett's house and is greeted by her new boyfriend. I've witnessed that same type of awkward civility between my parents and their respective new partners.

    An inconsequential shift as the continents drift.

    my favourite bit of acting in this movie was during the letter scene when Charlie got to the part about his alcoholic parents/bad childhood, and intentionally cut himself off with some mumbling. Adam Driver fucking killed it

    I really thought this would be a movie I watched once and absolutely loved but didn't go back to, but I've literally been thinking about it on and off ever since I watched it. Definitely think I need to go back to it before the Oscars

    I watched Frances Ha and Mistress America for the first time over the weekend. Both were great especially watching them side by side.

    I then rewatched Squid and the Whale. I think this is still my favorite of Baumbach's. It's short, sweet and to the point and I think it makes a great companion piece to Marriage Story kind of like how Frances Ha and Mistress America work well together.

    Yea, Squid and MS are probably his two most autobiographical

    I know he's denied some of the similarities between Marriage Story and his own life, has he said anything regarding Squid? Do you know if his parent's are divorced? If so, how old was Noah when it happened?

    Given the age and year it is set, the Jesse Eisenberg character was basically Noah... growing up in Brooklyn where his parents were splitting in the mid 80s. His parents were both writers. Only big difference is Noah's parents had 4 children instead of 2 in the movie.

    Thanks for info. I'm gonna try to watch Kicking and Screaming soon. I think it's the only one I haven't seen. May try to rewatch the others too as I don't think I've seen any of the rest since they were first released.
