'Marriage Story' Portrays a Painful Divorce at the Winter KCET Cinema Series on November 5
Q&A immediately following with writer/director Noah Baumbach and producer David Heyman.
A comedy-drama that premiered at the Venice Film Festival about a stage director (Adam Driver) and an actress (Scarlett Johansson) struggling through a grueling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes. Also stars Alan Alda, Laura Dern, Julie Haggerty, Ray Liotta and Wallace Shawn, among others.
Writer/director Noah Baumbach said, “Sometimes, it’s only when something breaks down that you understand it for the first time. And so it was through the narrative structure of a divorce that I was able to tell the story of a marriage. The legal system of divorce is set up to divide, necessarily. It divides people, family, property and time. It keeps everyone in their own story and obfuscates the other person’s point of view. But I wanted to construct another way of looking at it, a more generous offering. I wanted to find the love story in the breakdown.”
The film screens at 7:00 p.m. at the ArcLight Cinemas in Sherman Oaks. Immediately following the screening, Deadline’s chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET’s Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A session writer/director Noah Baumbach and producer David Heyman. “Marriage Story” will be released by Netflix on December 6, 2019.
The winter season of the KCET Cinema Series runs October 22 through December 10. The winter series is sold out and there will not be walk-up admissions available for the screenings.
