A limited series adaption of the classic Swedish Television miniseries, Scenes from a Marriage, is coming to HBO.
The 1973 version, written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, chronicles the disintegration of a marriage over a span of 10 years as couple Marianne and Johan struggle with love and turmoil in the midst of matrimony, infidelity, divorce, and subsequent partners.
