Husband: I work late tonight.
Wife: You work late every night.[Husband looks down and walks out]
Male voice: From a producer of “Marriage Story”.[Husband and Wife are in bed]
Male voice: And the studio that brought you scenes from a marriage, and the stunt team from Blue Valentine.[Wife is cutting vegetables. Husband tries to comfort her.]
Husband: Let me–
Wife: Don’t! [Accidentally cuts her finger a bit]
Husband: I’m sorry.
Wife: You’re always sorry, Nate. [walks away]
Male voice: Comes another film that shows you what a bummer it is to share your life with another person. “Brutal Marriage Movie”. Featuring two actors who fully expect Oscars. Really chewing on it. I mean, really chewing on it.[Husband gets back home]
Husband: Claire, I’m sorry.
Wife: Ezra has one tumbling recital a year. One. And you can’t even–
Husband: I had a heart attack.
Wife: I can’t!
Male voice: Just two straight people with their straight little problems.[They’re having dinner with friends]
Bowen: I feel like sex in your 30s is better.
Punkie: Way better.
Husband: Yeah, sex is fire.[Husband puts his hand on Wife’s thigh. Wife slaps his hand off.]
Male voice: And their hands tell the truth. Starring a woman who loves to drink wine and dance around. A man who loves to get petted. And never forget, the therapist will be black.[Husband and Wife is with their therapist]
Wife: My life is here.
Husband: And my life is there.
Therapist: So, break up?
Wife: No. No. We just want to fight a little more until we fall in love again.
Male voice: Married people across America are asking. “Is this for us? Because we don’t want it.” “Went to the movies, saw a damn play.” “I kept watching, mostly because I heard you see the actors [bleep]. Meh!” From a director going through a divorce himself, and now he gets to decide what happened.
Son: I wanna live with daddy. He’s such a good man.
Wife: You’re right.
Male voice: With all the moments you love. Man doesn’t hit woman, but breaks something close to her. Very, very quiet, then all of a sudden loud.[Husband holds Wife]
Husband: [soft voice] You look beautiful in this light.
Wife: [screaming] You’re suffocating me.
Male voice: And insane sex scene that’s only close up from the actors’ faces. And they cry again. “Brutal Marriage Movie”, just get a divorce.
