It is a realistic and extremely emotional film about what happens in a divorce and how those couples who seem happy and perfect at first glance, decide to separate and start with a difficult divorce process. The film passes every emotion and how both characters, Charlie and Nicole , are confronted by those mistakes that led them to make that decision to separate , but also, how can a legal process , cause a couple's feelings and cordiality to remain completely forgotten.
Although the film focuses more on Charlie's process, it gives us an idea of what happens with both characters; their emotions , thoughts and feelings , to empathize with each other's reasons for making the decisions they make and the actions they undertake.
The script is fantastic , it has comedy tints that are well received and the dramatic , emotional and thoughtful moments are respected to be able to savor them with the same emotions that the characters live. It is a realistic and somewhat crude story of why couples separate even though love continues to exist, and it is also a sign that feelings are not the only thing that keeps a healthy and happy marriage .
The performances are exquisite , as it has a select cast that has been nominated for an Oscar at least once, and although Scarlett Johansson stands out for his remote interpretation of a comedy or action character, Adam Driver is the one who takes all the palms for his character in "Story of a Marriage".
It is one of those films that leaves you reflecting and thinking even days after seeing it ... If you have gone through a similar process or even if you were the son of divorced parents, it will give you a new perspective on what a marriage means and a process of divorce
