On October 04th, Scarlett made a stop at the 57th New York Fiilm Festival for her new movie Marriage Story with co-stars Adam Drive, Laura Dern and director Noah Baumbach, Thr day began with a press conference at the at Walter Reade Theater but unfortunately Scarlett was a little late to it thanks to New York traffic but she did make it in the end for more of it. I have added to the gallery photos from it and you can watch the full video below.
The Marriage Story press conference at the 57th New York Fiilm Festival featured Noah Baumbach, Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda, and producer David Heyman. They discuss the influences on the film–from Hitchcock to Persona–Robbie Ryan’s cinematography, the duality of marriage, the importance of adding humor to the narrative, the different personalities of the lawyers, and much more. Moderated by Florence Almozini, NYFF selection committee member and Associate Director of Programming at Film at Lincoln Center.
57th New York Film Festival is presented by Film at Lincoln Center from Friday, September 27 – Sunday, October 13. See ticket info, the schedule, and more: https://filmlinc.org/nyff
Noah Baumbach’s new film is about the rapid tangling and gradual untangling of impetuosity, resentment, and abiding love between a married couple negotiating their divorce and the custody of their son. Adam Driver is Charlie, a 100-percent New York experimental theater director; Scarlett Johansson is Nicole, his principal actress and soon-to-be L.A.-based ex-wife. Their “amicable” breakup devolves, one painful rash response and hostile counter-response at a time, into a legal battlefield, led on Nicole’s side by Laura Dern and on Charlie’s side by nice Alan Alda and not-so-nice Ray Liotta. What is so remarkable about Marriage Story is its frank understanding of the emotional fluctuations between Charlie and Nicole: they are both short-sighted, both occasionally petty, both vindictive, and both loving. The film is as harrowing as it is hilarious as it is deeply moving. With Merritt Wever and Julie Hagerty as Nicole’s sister and mom, and Azhy Robertson as their beloved son, Henry. A Netflix release.
