Cinemascope: Tell Me You Love Me

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2007.

Plot line: This series is a drama about three couples and the therapist they share, Katie confronts Dave after catching him in a private moment; Carolyn and Palek face an ongoing fertility crisis; and Jaime questions Hugo's ability to remain faithful after they are married.

I watched this HBO series recently, and found it fascinating and disturbing. This is not your typical sappy-happy-ever-after trope that Hollywood continues to generate. It is an adult exploration of relationships, love, sex, secrets, and baggage. Yes, the couples were mostly Caucasian, hetero, and well off, but the themes explored are universal, and topics we do not really see explored often. A heads up that the sex is very explict, so if that bothers you this might not be for you. 

I could not find an official trailer, but you can see some that people have created online. If you have yet to see it, this is TV worth watching.
