Films on Marriage Story

Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story narrates the tale of a divorced couple in Brooklyn and the effect it has on their two kids. The film has been nominated in the Oscars for the best original screenplay and is worth a watch on your favourite streaming channel. Though this film deals with many of the same subjects, yet meticulously inspects the inimitable idiosyncrasies of a marriage, which is irrecoverably damaged even though both the man and wife continue loving one another.

Marriage Story has earned six nominations including best original screenplay, best picture, best actor, and best actress. Both Adam Driver as well as Scarlett Johansson who are far from delivering melodrama, and delight the audience with their raw performances, which any person married or not, in a relationship or not can easily relate.


Joker has earned as much as 11 nominations with an exceptional storyline that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats about Bateman’s most infamous foe. Joaquin Phoenix offers outstanding performance while getting into the skin of the character Arthur Fleck. He plays a clown as well as a stand-up comedian in Joker, which is worth a watch if you have not seen it yet. In fact, the movie is worth a second-time watch if you want to understand the film with its various complexities and multi-layered storytelling.

It is not a comic book film in any sense, but you can see a familiar character originating in the DC world. The film overlooks any of the superhero ensembles. The core of the film deals with a man, who’s psychologically damaged and struggling to survive in a big, bad world full of madness, inequality, and failing to succeed miserably. You can watch this movie on Amazon.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

This film brings to you stories that crash in a cultural dissonance and a thoroughly choreographed ending making outwardly off the cuff scenes featuring Steve McQueen or Bruce Lee, all contributing to something or the other. Now, this something is like a love letter to a very particular period in Hollywood, most of 1969 and until August 9, and to some extent, a revisionist narration of the Manson’s family’s notorious Tate-LaBianca killings of the particular night. The film’s happy conclusion left some people annoyed or perplexed, while many have appreciated this film as well. The screen chemistry between Brad Pitt and Leonardo Dicaprio did delight the audience. You can check it on Prime Video.

Though this is not a comprehensive list, you can watch these movies on streaming platforms.
