“Nine Perfect Strangers ss 2”: release date, announcement
A sequel to the “Nine Perfect Strangers” miniseries based on the novel of the same name is not planned. We shouldn’t wait for new episodes.
The main characters are people desperate to solve problems on their own. To help themselves live on, they decide to go to a boarding house, where Masha will help them find peace of mind. On the way, Frances loses her last strength, as her new book is not a success, and even groundlessly accused of feminism.
The upbeat Napoleon Marconi arrives with his wife and daughter. And if at first glance it seems that the problem lies in an eternally dissatisfied wife, then it soon becomes clear: the reason for their arrival lies in a completely different person.
Lars is the most mysterious newcomer. He tries not to follow the rules of the boarding house, but quickly realizes that this is impossible. Calling an unknown man on a wristwatch, he did not notice when Zoe, Napoleon’s daughter, saw him. The girl was not going to tell everyone about this incident, she just wanted to talk.
Frame from the TV showMarried couple Ben and Jessica look quite happy, but they also have a reason why they are here. Maybe this is Ben’s boundless jealousy, which he showed even towards Napoleon?
Tony arrived alone. On the way, he met Frances, whom he took for a madman — she walked along the road and carried delirium. His simplicity was amazing: he could defecate under the nearest tree, did not demand anything from others and seemed the most normal of all the guests of the boarding house. But even such a man may have his own secrets that he wanted to get rid of.
Carmel could not cope with the divorce, after which the children remained with her — this is her burden, which does not allow her to live in peace. In the evening on the very first day, Masha calls them to a meeting and inspires frank horror. Guests cautiously agree to her terms. And although not everyone is ready to observe them, they will soon find out how widespread the influence of the owner of the boarding house on their lives is…
Actors and their roles
- Masha — a Russian woman, instills fear in all guests, because she speaks in incomprehensible words, and sometimes she fulfills the threats she said aloud; without a twinge of conscience rummages in other people’s things; talked about the past, in which she only built a career and did not think about happiness, after which she was killed in a night parking and she was reborn with different thoughts — Nicole Kidman.
- Ben — a black man who came to rest with his wife; often thinks about business; practical; tries to change, remembering himself from the past; loves his wife and is jealous of her for absolutely everyone; drives around in an expensive sports car that delights the rest of the guests — Melvin Gregg.
- Napoleon — the average family man whose marriage is going through a bad time; he himself says that if he is not stopped in time, he can say a lot of unnecessary things — Michael Shannon.
- Frances — a successful writer in decline in popularity; cannot get rid of obsessions; from the day of her arrival dislikes Tony; it was hard to part with the phone, after which she cautiously went to a meeting with Masha — Melissa McCarthy.
- The participation of Nicole Kidman did not bring the producers the expected success, since the TV show on the aggregator sites was at best rated 6-7 points out of a possible 10. Some critics call the actress’s play unconvincing, while others are sure that poorly edited episodes were the culprit.
- The slogan of the TV series is “Welcome to Tranquillum”. This name was used only during filming, but before the show was released, it was decided to change it.
- Writer David E. Kelley, cameraman Yves Belange, costume designer Alix Friedberg, editor David Berman, who worked on the TV show “Nine Perfect Strangers” have previously worked together on the TV project “Big Little Lies“. By the way, Nicole Kidman also got the main role there.
