Noah Baumbach on his film Marriage Story. Plus: everything you need to know before the Oscars

av Culture Call | Publicerades 2/6/2020

We're back with a brand new season! In our pre-Oscars special, Gris talks to Noah Baumbach, director of the nominated film Marriage Story, about love, divorce — and how Netflix is changing film. Plus: the FT's film critic Danny Leigh drops into the studio ahead of the Academy Awards. Who's going to win? Who really should win? And do the Oscars — for which no female directors and just one actor of colour were nominated — still matter in 2020? As always, we'd love to hear from you.
