Airdate: Scenes from a Marriage
Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain star in new HBO miniseries from the creator of The Affair.
HBO miniseries Scenes from a Marriage, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain will premiere on FOX Showcase in September, at the same time as the USA.
The five-part limited drama is written, directed and executive produced by Hagai Levi (The Affair), adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 Swedish classic television series, described as a captivating re-examination of the dilemmas posed by the original, exploring love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce.
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.
Scenes from a Marriage is exclusive in Australia to the Foxtel Group.
Monday, September 13 at 11.00am AEST on FOX Showcase. Binge is yet to advise.
