Romance and passion in the official trailer of the miniseries from the novel by Sally Rooney

The TV adaptation of Talking Among Friends, the debut novel by the acclaimed Irish writer, will be released in the United States on Hulu on May 15.

Relationships, broken hearts, sexual tensions that make us take a ride on the roller coaster of emotions, together with the protagonists. The official trailer from Conversations With Friendsthe miniseries based on the homonymous debut novel by Sally Rooney – in Italy known by the title Talk about it among friends -, exactly conveys the sensations (le vibes, we would say in social jargon) that is expected from such a series and captures the complexity and contradictions of the pages of the book. On the other hand, this adaptation comes from the same team that gave us Normal Peoplethe miniseries based on Rooney’s other best-selling novel: the director Lenny Abrahamsonthe screenwriter Alice Birch and the Irish writer herself involved as executive producer.

The plot of Conversations With Friends

Waiting in the United States, on Hulu, the next one May 15 (in Italy it does not yet have a location but, if it follows the same process as Normal Peopleexpect to see it soon on STARZPLAY), Conversation With Friends tells the story of two couples in 12 episodes: Frances (Alison Oliver) and his ex-girlfriend Bobbi (Sasha Lane, Loki), now her best friend, and the spouses Melissa (Jemima Kirke, Sex Education) and Nick (Joe Alwyn, The last love letter). Melissa and Bobbi start a flirtation as Frances and Nick embark on a passionate secret relationship, testing the bond between Frances and Bobbi and forcing them all to reconsider themselves.

In the trailer we see Frances still having her heart broken from her breakup with Bobbi, but charming Nick makes her feel like she could still love. “I know he’s married, but I thought it was funny,” she says. Meanwhile Bobbi can’t take her eyes off Melissa: “Obviously I have a crush on her,” he admits. Things quickly fall apart and, after the first enthusiasm, the protagonists face the consequences of their actions on their respective relationships, in an attempt to save a marriage on the one hand and a friendship on the other.
