In his first TV role, Irish actor Paul Mescal won a BAFTA for his lead performance. His chemistry with Brit Daisy Edgar-Jones is palpable and gripping, brilliantly capturing the enchantment and pain of a first love. Co-directed by the UK’s Hettie Macdonald and co-written by Brit Alice Birch, the intimate and immersive series was co-produced by the UK’s BBC.





Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell (Paul Mescal) come from different backgrounds but the same small town in Ireland. From school to students at Dublin’s prestigious Trinity College, they engage in a compelling on-again-off-again relationship.
