Welcome back to Loud Murmurs Season 3 and happy New Year to our listeners!

We start the year strong with a deep dive into the timeless theme of the “unhappily-ever-after battle of the sexes” -- divorce. Your hosts, Afra, Ina, along with our guest Mr. You, discuss Noah Baumbach’s frontrunner in the Oscar horse race, Marriage Story. Beautifully acted by Adam Driver and Scarlett Johanson, Marriage Story offers a snapshot of a husband and wife navigating the emotionally and physically draining process of divorce. 

Here are a couple of things we discuss: 

  • The dismantling of an American middle-class family, a common theme of Baumbach’s movies, and how this core demographic impacts the movies that he’s made
  • Women’s role as a mother, a wife, and how it’s viewed by society 
  • What’s divorce really like (a personal experience)?
