About Scenes From A Marriage
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 (Chastain) is a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled by 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 first episode lays out the groundwork for the series. Titled “Innocence and Panic”, it shows how after a tense day of reflection and disclosure, Mira and her husband Jonathan navigate the consequences of unexpected news. The episode is directed by Hagai Levi. Check out the trailer here.
