“Marriage Story” by Noah Baumbach (US, 2019, 20 minutes too long) with Scarlett Johansson, Kylo Ren and Laura Dern. On Netflix.
Some actress (Scarlett Johansson) claims that she’s not happy anymore with genius director husband in New York (Kylo Ren) and takes their son away to Los Angeles and hires a shark lawyer (Laura Dern) to claim that the son is hers and basically she is free to do whatever she wants because she needs to pursue her acting career, since as we all know New York is no film city apart from – just considering 2019 – The Irishman, Hustlers, 21 Bridges, dozens of others and even Marriage Story, so next time you got a itch just take your son to Paris and then claim that it’s your right to take a son away from his dad because you need to focus on yourself while your partner be it a man or a woman just cannot understand, then cry and do some overacting, and so Kylo Ren was already quite an unfortunate soul in Star Wars, then he was like this goofy boyfriend with Lena Dunham and now as sperm donor perfectly fits the archetypal image of man that Hollywood seems to long so much for. The End.
Serpo nutshell: A must-watch film if you are considering getting married without a prenup.
