HBO has released a poster and trailer for the upcoming TV adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 drama Scenes from a Marriage. Directed by Hagai Levi, the limited series examines the relationship of a contemporary American couple Mira (Jessica Chastain) and Jonathan (Oscar Isaac); take a look here…
A captivating re-examination of the dilemmas probed by the original, the five-episode limited series explores love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple. Mira (Jessica Chastain) is a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled by her marriage, and Jonathan (Oscar Isaac) is a cerebral and accommodating philosophy professor desperate to keep their relationship intact. Throughout, SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE mines the full complexity of Jonathan and Mira as individuals who ultimately know their marriage isn’t being torn apart by any one event or flaw, resulting in a radically honest series that allows the audience to eavesdrop on private conversations between two people torn between feelings of hate and love.
The series also stars Corey Stoll, Nicole Beharie, Sunita Mani, and Maury Ginsberg.
Scenes from a Marriage premieres on HBO Max on September 12th.
