    Marriage Story (Noah Baumbach, starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver)

    Modern day Kramer vs Kramer? Also loving the The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby approach in the marketing. Johansson looks amazing here; between this, Jojo Rabbit, and starring in the highest-grossing film of all time, 2019 might be her most banner year yet (her interviews asides).





    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Same.

    All indications that I'll be seeing this in Telluride.

    Not going to lie, I haven't given a Baumbach movie higher than three stars. And don't really have a desire to see Squid and the Whale again... But the way this is coming together, it sounds like a career-best for him.

    I remember "Rigby" had a good hook and received festival buzz but died quickly once it hit theaters.

    I dig Baumbach and this looks ... okay. I'd be into it more if the co-lead was anyone but Johansson. I can't think of two performers more mismatched than her and Driver.

    So is Scarlett going to be Jennifer Jason-Leigh or Greta Gerwig?
