MANILA, SEPTEMBER 2, 2021 – From Hagai Levi (HBO’s “In Treatment” and “Our Boys,” “The Affair”), HBO’s five-part limited series Scenes From A Marriage will debut same time as the U.S. on Monday, September 13 at 9am exclusively on HBO GO and HBO, with a same day encore at 10pm on HBO. New episodes will premiere every Monday at the same time. This modern adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish series stars Oscar Isaac (HBO’s “Show Me a Hero”) and Jessica Chastain (Academy Award® nominee for “Zero Dark Thirty”).
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.
