Foxtel announced today the highly anticipated limited drama series Scenes from a Marriage, featuring Hollywood heavyweights Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain will premiere at the same time as the U.S next month.
The latest trailer released today depicts Chastain and Isaac as a modern-day American couple navigating the complexities of marriage. The five-part series is adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s highly acclaimed 1973 Swedish classic television series and is 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.
The five-part limited drama is an HBO Original series written, directed and executive produced by The Affair co-creator, Hagai Levi.
Scenes from a Marriage begins Monday, September 13 at 11.00am on Fox Showcase
