HBO released the first Oslo Trailer today ahead of the film debut on May 29th. After its premiere on the subscription channel, Ruth Wilson (HBO’s Its dark materials and Mrs. Wilson) and Andrew Scott-directed film will be streamed on HBO Max.
Oslo is based on the award-winning piece of the same name. It’s a dramatization of real events in which Golden Globe winner Wilson plays a Norwegian Foreign Minister named Mona Juul and Scott (Fleabag and Black mirror) as her husband. The plot of the film revolves around “Negotiations between relentless enemies – the secret feedback channel conversations, improbable friendships and silent exploits of a small but dedicated group of Israelis, Palestinians and a Norwegian couple that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords”.
