Amazon’s Modern Love, real stories with a star cast

By Nora Quintanilla / New York / Modern Love was born as a column in The New York Times in 2004 and now, 15 years later, Amazon has brought to the TV screen with a series starring Anne Hathaway, Cristin Milioti and Andrew Scott.

“It’s nice to step out of the ‘boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets the girl back’. It’s nice to step away from that and have a vibe that is a little bit more everybody in,” actress Anne Hathaway said in an interview with EFE.

The new Amazon’s Prime Video show will premiere on 18 October.

The Oscar winner plays one of the main roles in the anthology, which has been adapted from essays by professional or amateur authors published by the newspaper.

Most of the episodes of Modern Love are directed, written and produced by John Carney (Begin Again), who highlighted the complexity of the character played by Hathaway: a woman (Lexi) who deals with work, love and bipolar disorder at the same time.

“Lexi reminded me of some people who I know and love, who don’t often see themselves in love stories (…) I really wanted to do my part and tell that story,” Hathaway added.

The actress contacted the essay’s author, Terri Chaney, to get the role prepare.

“So much of the conversation about mental health puts the pressure on the person who is dealing with mental health to fix the system, to abdicate themselves, to learn to assimilate into society. I don’t think that’s right,” she said.

Modern Love also shows the story of an almost paternal connection that arises between a young woman and the caretaker of the building where she lives when she realizes that she is pregnant after a one-night stand.

The character is played by Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother, Black Mirror).

“Love is love and it’s always been. I’m so thrilled that now we are accepting all forms of love that have always been there,” Milioti told EFE.

“Love it’s one of the most beautiful things about being alive.”

The TV series includes the story of a gay and interracial couple who wants to adopt a baby and ends up being a family of four.

Actor Andrew Scott (Fleabag, Sherlock), one half of that couple, said that there is no typical form love.

“You can live an unusual life that is valid, thinking: does this make me happy, how I am going to create my life, instead of the small idea of how love looks like or how a family looks like,” Scott said.

The eight episodes of Modern Love, which are unrelated stories and last about 30 minutes, have brought together Hollywood stars such as Andy Garcia, Dev Patel, Julia Garner, John Slattery, Tina Fey, Brandon Victor Dixon and Catherine Keener. (October 12, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
