It was a blessing because they didn’t need to get to know one another and could be brutally honest with one another. But it was also a curse because they couldn’t take a break from their togetherness and got to the point “where we were reading each others minds!”
“So I was like ‘Get out of my head!’” Chastain told reporters ahead of the premiere. “I felt on this job that there was no quiet time.”
The project was an intense one, reimagining in a contemporary American context the unravelling of a marriage depicted in Bergman’s 1973 Swedish television miniseries that starred Bergman’s longtime partner, Liv Ullmann. In this five-episode HBO series directed by Hagai Levi, the gender roles are essentially flipped and the circumstances brought up-to-date.
Isaac, who has two other movies showing at Venice, agreed that their close friendship posed “its own challenges” when filming such an inherently fraught projectm since “you care about the person so much."
The two, who starred together in the 2014 “A Most Violent Year,”’ used an intimacy coordinator and lots of talking to map out the bedroom scenes to make sure both were comfortable.
Isaac, who noted that their children are together in the same play group, said he and Chastain also watched films together try to figure out how to represent the sexual side of their relationship to make it seem truthful without going overboard.
“There are so many times you don’t buy it, and then it can get too gratuitous and you don’t really buy that either,” Isaac said.
Chastain said she appreciated talking through the characters and mapping out their relationship ahead of time.
“I would still get embarrassed, so bourbon helped a lot,” Chastain said, giggling. “But the level of trust was high.”

Jessica Chastain & Oscar Isaac On Portraying The Intensity & Intimacy Of ‘Scenes From A Marriage’: “Bourbon Helped” — Venice Film Festival
04 September, 2021 - 06:12am
Adapted from Ingmar Bergman’s lauded 1973 Swedish miniseries, the HBO mini-series re-examines Bergman’s iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple. Chastain plays Mira, a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled by her marriage. Isaac is Jonathan, a cerebral and accommodating philosophy professor desperate to keep their relationship intact.
The new drama heralds from acclaimed Israeli TV writer-director Hagai Levi, known for series including In Treatment, The Affair and Our Boys.
Chastain admitted that the project was an intense one to make: “It felt incredibly exposing”, she said. “It was hard to go home and leave it at work. Part of myself was in it.”
The limited series reunites Chastain and Isaac, who were classmates at Julliard, are longtime friends and starred together in 2014’s A Most Violent Year.
Despite that friendship, the intensity of the show posed unique challenges.
Chastain continued: “We would joke that [the friendship] is a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because there’s immediate trust. You don’t have to be worried about offending. You can be very honest. The difficult thing is that at times we were reading each other’s minds. It was like ‘get out of my head’. So, I felt on this job there was no quiet time.”
Isaac — who is also at the festival with Dune and The Card Counter — added: “That’s well said. Professionally, it’s great when you know someone so well because you don’t have to worry about a lot of stuff you usually worry about. However, on something this intense you care about the person so much, because it’s like working with family. If you didn’t know someone so well, getting your own space isn’t so hard.”
Chastain said of the intimate scenes in the series: “In terms of physical intimacy, we had an intimacy co-ordinator and HBO was really great about us all having conversations about what we were comfortable with. Oscar and I are very comfortable with each other so we had our own separate talks. That was helpful.”
She added, laughing: “I would still get embarrassed, though, so bourbon helped a lot. But the level of trust was high.”
Oscar nominee Chastain said later in the press conference: “For me, I’m really excited about looking at the series in terms of gender roles. The original looks at the gender roles in that time period, this version looks at it through the current time period in terms of salary, who is supporting the family, what it means to be a mother, a woman’s relationship to sex, fertility, there are so many aspects.”
Israeli director Hagai Levi explained his inspiration for taking on the series: “I was shocked when I first saw Bergman’s version. I was really young. It made me realize that TV could be art. It became a reference for me when making shows like In Treatment. When I was approached by Ingmar Bergman’s son Daniel I was frightened and excited but knew I had to try to crack it somehow.”
Sunita Mani, Nicole Beharie, Corey Stoll and Tovah Feldshuh co-star in the five-part series which launches on HBO on September 12.
The limited series from Media Res and Endeavor Content is exec-produced by Isaac, Chastain, Levi and Michael Ellenberg via Media Res, Lars Blomgren, Daniel Bergman, Blair Breard and Amy Herzog.

As Americans get ready to celebrate the end of summer, health officials are once again urging the public, particularly those who are still unvaccinated, to act responsibly during the Labor Day weekend, given the country's ongoing struggle with the virus. "First and foremost, if you are unvaccinated, we would recommend not traveling," Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a White House COVID-19 briefing Tuesday.
