Marriage Story, Noah Baumbach’s new film starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as a couple going through a divorce, has picked up several Golden Globe nominations and sparked a wave of positive reviews.
After its Netflix release on Friday, it’s also sparked some discourse around a certain scene.
Late in the film, Johansson’s Nicole (an actress) and Driver’s Charlie (a theatre director) are alone in Charlie’s Los Angeles apartment, in the midst of a messy separation process.
As they try to get on the same page about their young son Henry, the conversation gets more emotional and they say things to purposely hurt each other. The scene is explosive, brutal and devastating.
On Twitter, parts of the scene were turned into a meme, because why not? It’s the internet.
Here is a sampling of some of the best memes.
