SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE
Starring: Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain
Creator: Hagai Levi
While I can appreciate the powerhouse performances from Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain (they truly are award-worthy), Scenes From a Marriage is not a fun miniseries. You're essentially watching a white collar marriage fall apart for five hours, complete with all the fighting, manipulation, and awkwardness that entails. If you're watching for the "art" of it, then I suppose you'll get what you're looking for. However, I never enjoyed spending an hour with this couple (Chastain’s Mira is an especially unlikeable character). It's a total buzzkill. A generally well-crafted buzzkill, but a buzzkill, nonetheless. What sort of psychopath finds this entertaining?
