Scenes From A Marriage Watch Online On Disney+ Hotstar
An American drama series ‘Scenes From A Marriage’ is getting an overwhelming response from fans. The mini-series is created by Hagai Levi and produced by HBO. Scenes From A Marriage has stellar performances by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles.
The show is the remake of 1973 Swedish miniseries by the same name. The show has released its fifth and final episode and the web series is a must-watch for people who are looking for drama.
The series is a reimagining of Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 Swedish series. However, there’s an interesting flip of the gender power balance in the couple’s disintegrating marriage in Hagai Levi’s version. In the show, Jessica Chastain’s character Mira is the earner in the family while Jonathan (Oscar Isaac) is the househusband.
The drama series is a slow burn and takes time to gather momentum. You will see the development of characters and their psyche. This is certainly not the mystery and thrill to hook you from the very first scene. However, this is one important thing you need to understand about relationships and marriage. The discussions about modern ideas about monogamy and marriage are pretty relatable.
