Meme Of The Week: ‘Marriage Story’ Becomes The Unlikeliest Meme

This week’s meme is inspired by the Netflix movie Marriage Story, which has resonated with hundreds of people.

“Marriage Story” is a great movie and a possible Oscar winner, but it’s still a total downer. Telling the story of a couple’s damaging divorce and their fight for custody of their young son, it’s a movie that manages to be comedic and heartbreaking, yet it’s not the kind of content you’d expect to go viral on Twitter. Thanks to Netflix and its wide reach, that’s exactly what’s happened, with people adding creative twists to one of the film’s most memorable scenes.

The scene in question is one of the most pivotal scenes of the movie (and a total Spoiler Alert). In it, protagonists Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson scream at each other over typical divorce things. Driver punches a hole in a wall, and it’s all very intense and meme-able.
