Shot on Kodak 35mm film, director Noah Baumbach’s tragi-comedy Marriage Story is hotly-tipped for nominations across-the-board during the 2020 awards season, including its cinematographer Robbie Ryan BSC ISC.

Baumbach’s sensitive and sharp-witted bi-coastal narrative centers on a marriage falling apart but a family remaining together. It follows Charlie Barber, a director, and his wife, Nicole, an actress. For many years during their marriage the pair have worked together at the same avant-garde New York theatre company, and raised a son, Henry, who is now eight years old. But the couple have reached the point of divided family harmony. When Nicole accepts a part in a TV pilot shooting in Los Angeles, taking the boy with her, the conflicted spouses put the wheels of divorce, and the custody battle over their son, into motion.

Along with Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver in the leads, the $18M Netflix film also stars Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Azhy Robertson, Julie Hagerty, and Merritt Wever. The musical score was composed by Randi Newman.
