There is no Adam driver or Scarlett Johansson, but we couldn’t help but think of Marriage Story while watching the trailer for HBO’s latest limited series.
Why? Well, in the first look for Scenes from a Marriage out on HBO in September, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain navigate the ups and downs of an intimate relationship. So you can’t blame us for immediately thinking about it Noah Baumbach‘s film from 2019, which was a staple at all major awards ceremonies.
In reality, we are probably getting a déjà vu as the upcoming series is actually a remake of Ingmar Bergmann1973 miniseries of the same name. For those unfamiliar with the original, the six-part series follows a couple who worked through their complicated marriage, infidelity, and eventually a breakup.
From what we can see in the new trailer below, it seems like similar topics are being introduced in this iteration, written and directed by Hagai Levi.
