Netflix’s New Series ‘Easy’ Gives An Honest Look At How Complicated Relationships Can Be

09.27.16 3 years ago 2 Comments

If creator/director Joe Swanberg set out to prove anything with his new Netflix series, it’s that, despite the show’s title, relationships are never easy. Sporting an A-list cast that includes the likes of Orlando Bloom, Marc Maron, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Dave Franco, the eight-episode series dives into the joys, triumphs, betrayals and disappointments of love by following different people in different stages of romance.

From a married couple trying to spice up their 19-year relationship to a woman forcing herself to become a vegan in order to impress the girl she hooked up with the night before, Swanberg seems interested in giving us a raw, unfiltered and consequently honest portrayal of what love looks like in the 21st century. There are threesomes initiated through Tinder, stay-at-home dads worrying over emasculating sex studies, couples breaking up in order to pursue careers and staying together in order to preserve families.
