“One of the most realistic and genuinely told love stories I have ever seen. Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson & Laura Dern are perfect. – Lauren Veneziani, WBAL-TV


“Johansson and Driver are remarkably, heartbreakingly good in every scene; showing their characters’ journeys to an unflinching camera, letting the gap between them get wider yet unable, for their son’s sake, to completely walk away.” – Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times


“It’s a triumph, a mix of pleasure and pain that cuts so deep it leaves a scar. It hurts, but it hurts so good.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News



New York theatre director Charlie (Adam Driver) and actress Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) struggle through a gruelling, coast-to-coast divorce that pushes them to their personal and creative extremes. For years, Nicole, who was once a successful Hollywood actress, has wanted to return to Los Angeles, but Charlie has no interest in moving. When she relocates with their eight-year-old son, Henry (Azhy Robertson), things get ugly between the two spouses. Charlie has to fly back and forth to see Henry, while their legal teams drive wedges between the two, who at first, began their separation amicably. (synopsis from tribute.ca)
