Conversations with Friends will be a 12-episode, half-hour drama on Hulu. It stars Alison Oliver, Jemima Kirke, Joe Alwyn and Sasha Lane. As if that wasn’t enough to look forward to, Phoebe Bridgers, has written a song for the film.
The song is called Sidelines. Bridgers label confirmed that is the only song that she will be releasing this year.
The series is, “Described as both a complex coming of age drama and a very modern love story, Conversations with Friends follows Frances (Oliver), a 21-year-old college student, as she navigates a series of relationships that force her to confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time. Frances is observant, cerebral and sharp. Her ex-girlfriend, now best friend, Bobbi (Lane) is self-assured, outspoken and compelling. Though they broke up three years ago, Frances and Bobbi are virtually inseparable and perform spoken word poetry together in Dublin.
It’s at one of their shows that they meet Melissa (Kirke), an older writer, who is fascinated by the pair. Bobbi and Frances start to spend time with Melissa and her husband, Nick (Alwyn), a handsome but reserved actor. While Melissa and Bobbi flirt with each other openly, Nick and Frances embark on an intense, secret affair that is surprising to them both. Soon the affair begins to test the bond between Frances and Bobbi, forcing Frances to reconsider her sense of self, and the friendship she holds so dear.”
Bridgers will be at Coachella this weekend, where she’s expected to perform the song. Are you excited for Conversations with Friends?
