Marriage Story premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2019, just in time for the streaming network’s big Oscar push. Noah Baumbach wrote the screenplay for the movie and also directed the Netflix original movie. Baumbach also wrote and directed The Meyerowitz Stories at Netflix.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver star in Netflix movie as Nicole and Charlie Barber. The Netflix movie tells their story from each perspective as the couple goes through a divorce and tries to care for their son, Henry.

This was one of the most popular Netflix movies of 2019, and it’s also one of the most meme-able. If you’re a fan of great acting performances, this is the movie for you on Netflix.

Marriage Story was nominated for six Oscars at the 2019 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor noms for Johannson, Driver, and Laura Dern. It only won one Oscar – Dern won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. The lack of big wins at the Oscars shouldn’t take away from how good this romance movie is.
