The must-see HBO drama series Scenes from a Marriage, featuring star duo Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain arrives today on FOXTEL and BINGE, fast-tracked from the US.
The HBO Original limited series is adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s acclaimed 1973 Swedish classic television series, and re-examines its iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple.
The latest trailer released today depicts Chastain and Isaac as a modern-day American couple navigating the complexities of marriage.
Mira (Chastain) is a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled in her marriage, and Jonathan (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.
Oscar Isaac’s credits include Ex Machina, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and HBO series Show Me A Hero, for which he won a Golden Globe. Jessica Chastain’s credits include Interstellar, Zero Dark Thirty and The Help, which earned her an Academy Award nomination. Scenes from a Marriage marks Chastain’s first starring role in a television series.
The series is written and directed by The Affair co-creator, Hagai Levi. It is produced by Media Res and Endeavor for HBO. Executive Producers: Hagai Levi, Amy Herzog, Michael Ellenberg, Lars Blomgren, Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, Daniel Bergman, Blair Breard.
Scenes from a Marriage is exclusive in Australia to the FOXTEL Group.
