The duo have known each other for years, but being old friends has been a mixed blessing when it comes to playing a married couple in HBO’s Scenes From A Marriage.

VENICE: The actors Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac have known each other for years , but being old friends has been a mixed blessing when it comes to playing a married couple in the new TV miniseries Scenes From A Marriage, the couple said on Saturday (Sept. 5).

Chastain, 44, and Isaac, 42, who both studied at Juilliard Arts School and have been friends since college, star Mira and Jonathan on the HBO series, an adaptation of the miniseries of the same name by acclaimed Swedish director Ingmar Bergman.

Under directed by Israeli filmmaker Hagai Levi plays the version 2021 in the United States and examines the themes of love, marriage, monogamy and divorce, which were also explored in the original series, through a contemporary lens.

“This examines the gender roles in a relationship in the current era in relation to that Salary … who supports the family … what it means to be a mother, a woman’s relationship with sex, all these things, “said Chastain called.

” The piece really allows you to see what it meant to be a wife and mother at that time and what it could mean at that time, “she said when she presented the series at the Venice Film Festival with Isaac and Levi.

Levi, 58, said that he shocked and inspired the 1973 original series as a young religious Jewish boy in a remote village.

He said he used his religious background for the script he co-wrote and was eager to face the challenges facing “the new man, softer, more inhibited, and more complicated” today.

Chastain and Isaac described their close relationship as “both a blessing and a curse” when it came to portraying the couple what led to a slight intimacy and trust, but left little personal space.

“We got to the point where we had read each other’s thoughts and I thought, ‘Get out!’. I felt like there was no quiet time on this job, “Chastain said.

An intimacy coordinator helped the actors calm down while filming sex scenes, but they were still awkward, she added.

All five episodes of Scenes From A Marriage will be shown out of competition at the 78th Venice Film Festival, which runs through September 11th.
