Over their extensive filmographies, both Paul Giamatti and Kathryn Hahn have played a plethora of complex characters while still managing to leave an indelible stamp on every role. Whether it be Sideways, Billions, Transparent, or I Love Dick, Giamatti and Hahn have a knack for playing people that are doing their best in spite of their circumstances.
Private Life, an upcoming film that pairs these two together, provides a big canvas for them to show off and it sure looks like they show off exquistely. Also, it’ll be the latest offering from writer/director Tamara Jenkins, who also wrote and directed one of our favorite dark comedy/dramas, The Savages.
Get a taste of what’s to come in this trailer, then look for Private Life to begin streaming on Netflix starting October 5th.
