Adam Driver describes Marriage Story as a love story about divorce.
Mr. Brickman went on to say, "As a husband and father who is divorced, spending twelve years post-divorce, in and out of court, I watched with so many mixed emotions, sadness, nervous anticipation, anger, and even disgust."
He described the film as a must see for all to watch as a depiction of what can happen when you enter a marriage contract. There are relationship dynamics, family dynamics, and legal ramifications at play. The word of advice is to know ahead of time of what you are getting into.
Mr. Brickman also mentioned the depiction of a mediator was not accurate at all but did not go into detail keeping his reaction spoiler-free.
