Anyone out there ever seen a marriage really work? Tell me what it’s like. Because I don’t really think that exists – the whole marriage is good thing.
But then again, I am a cynic and I hang onto my ways. And regardless of how I feel about love, I will put myself through any and all emotional torment for a good television show.
And Scenes From A Marriage looks like the thing to torment me and I will enjoy so very much.
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.”
