In Netflix’s Wanderlust, Toni Collette and Steven Mackintosh star as a married couple (Joy and Ala) who live in a small English town and are coming to some new realizations about what they want from life after a cycling accident puts their sex life on hold. The 6-episode series explores how the two try to make a mutual arrangement to sleep with other people while also staying together, which of course starts off ok and seems to turn pretty messy almost immediately. Though the trailer for the series starts off with comedic undertones, it ends in a very different place. It seems clear that while Joy and Alan’s plans do (at least at some point) end up reinvigorating their own marriage and attraction to one another, it also becomes an emotional flashpoint — no surprise there! – as they become more deeply entangled with the people they are having these other relations, and relationships, with. Wanderlust premieres October 19th on Netflix. The trailer can be watched in the video archive while screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.

The Sydney Morning Herald has a great lengthy interview with Toni Collette on the upcoming release of “Wanderlust” in Australia: In the 20-plus years that she’s been on our screens, Toni Collette has tended to avoid playing characters she has much in common with. That, she reasons, would be boring. It means she wasn’t ever like the awkward Muriel Heslop in her breakout film, P.J. Hogan’s 1994 classic Muriel’s Wedding. Nor has she been a suicidal hippie like Fiona in the 2002 British rom-com About a Boy. And (as far as she knows) neither of her children sees dead people, as her character’s son did in Hollywood’s 1999 supernatural flick The Sixth Sense. But Collette’s latest role is as a therapist. And within a few minutes of her relaxing into a chair in the restaurant in London’s West End where we meet, I suspect she’s fairly good at giving profound advice. “Life is long,” she says, scanning the menu and casting it aside in one smooth motion. “Some people stick to the rules, some people question who made them. And those people then pave their own way, which is a braver, more satisfying path, yes, but it’s also a scarier one, you know?” I think so. To be fair to Collette, we are talking about the themes of Wanderlust, a new drama co-produced by the BBC and Netflix, in which she plays Joy, a counsellor who tries to resuscitate her own marriage after a cycling accident. But gentle wisdom, smoothed by travel, seems to pour from her. The interview can be read in its entirety on their website:

After an on-demand release two weeks ago, “Hereditary” has been released on Blu-Ray and DVD in the United States today. Needless to say, as it was mentioned by critics ever since its Sundance debut, “Hereditary” is not only one of the best horror films of all times, but also a signature performance by Toni Collette, right on top with “Muriel’s Wedding”, “The Sixth Sense” and “Little Miss Sunshine”. Her performance is brilliant, as is everyone else in the cast. If you’ve missed it in the theater or you’ve been waiting to watch it in the safety of your own home (doesn’t make it better), make sure to grab your copy. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery – with massive spoilers towards the end, you have been warned. Also, screencaptures from the making of featurette and from the deleted scenes have been added as well. Enjoy!

“Wanderlust” premieres on BBC1 tonight, and so far it has received some of the silliest promotion from the British press one can imagine. I won’t bother linking to any of the “most X-rated drama ever”, “groundbreaking sex scenes” and “first orgasm on the BBC”. I assume those who tune in because of these headlines will be in for a disappointment. We’ll find out later today. In the meantime, the Telegraph’s Stella Magazine has run a cover story on Toni this Sunday. Here’s a preview: In the 20-plus years that she’s been on our screens, Toni Collette has tended to avoid playing characters she has much in common with. That, she reasons, would just be boring. It means she wasn’t ever like the awkward Muriel Heslop in her breakout film, Muriel’s Wedding. Nor has she been a suicidal hippie like Fiona in About a Boy.

Article from Radio Times for today’s premiere of “Wanderlust” on BBC1: In some ways the concept behind Wanderlust is a hard sell: a drama about the sex life of a middle-aged married couple? And the wife is a psychotherapist called Joy whose whole life has been shaken up by a cycling accident? And the husband is an English teacher called Alan? Could be dull. But we have good news! Wanderlust is excellent. Even better, Joy is played by Toni Collette who could give an Oscar-worthy performance just by reading out the back of a shampoo bottle, and Alan is played by The Halcyon’s Steven Mackintosh. No shampoo bottles are necessary because playwright Nick Payne (Constellations) has delivered a script that is funny and pacy and also very, very truthful. Sometimes painfully so. What we get is a drama that takes a hard look at marriage, monogamy and the thorny connections between love and lust and sex. While Joy and Alan are having their Bedroom Issues, their two kids are navigating problems of their own: hormone-filled teenager Tom is desperate to get going, and grown-up daughter Naomi is suffering the heartbreak of rejection. The complete article can be read Radio Times.
