Malcolm & Marie appears to explore the nature of modern romantic relationships. The film follows the titular couple’s relationship as they unpack their relationship; make boxed mac ’n’ cheese and spill out secrets, feelings and revelations about each other.
The film has already created quite a buzz with Netflix acquiring the title for a whopping $30 million at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The trailer tells us, ““This is not a love story. This is the story of love,” and it sure promises a lot with its trailer. Malcolm & Marie premieres on Netflix on February 5.
