Following last month’s reveal of the first teaser trailer for HBO’s upcoming limited series Scenes from a Marriage, the full, official trailer has now been released. Additionally, the premiere date has been confirmed for Sunday, September 12.
Scenes from a Marriage is adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish miniseries and developed, written and directed by Hagai Levi (In Treatment, Our Boys).
“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.“
