Director-screenwriter Noah Baumbach shows how getting a divorce can be a terrible crucible in the USA.
A theatre director and an actress decide to arrange their divorce amicably. But the situation escalates. The sequence of discussion-driven scenes never tires because Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver mesmerize you with the dialogues, and they both manage to get the audience on their side. Some of the surreal situations make you want to grimace, but it is the tragedy that leaves the most painful mark.
