Scenes From a Marriage

When Mira (Jessica Chastain) one evening announces to her husband (Oscar Isaac) that she has a lover and intends to leave the country with him, their marriage falls apartā€¦ but itā€™s not the end of their relationship. This new interpretation of Ingmar Bergmanā€™s landmark 1973 miniseries turns the woman into the one whoā€™s breaking up the marriage, changing the dynamic. Boosted by superior performances by the two leads, and their confrontations, the ā€scenesā€, are effectively and intimately staged. But the characters still come across as aloof, the drama never as arresting as in Hagai Leviā€™s In Treatment.Ā 

2021-U.S. Made for TV. 283 min. Color. Developed and directed byĀ Hagai Levi. Teleplay: Hagai Levi, Amy Herzog. Cinematography: Andrij Parekh. Cast: Oscar Isaac (Jonathan Levy), Jessica Chastain (Mira Phillips), Nicole Beharie (Kate), Corey Stoll (Peter).

Trivia: Originally shown in five episodes. Co-executive produced by Chastain, Isaac, Levi and Ingmar Bergmanā€™s son Daniel. Michelle Williams was reportedly first cast as Mira.Ā
