Conversations With Friends
BBC Three, Sunday 15 May at 10 pm
The television adaptation of Sally Rooney’s acclaimed novel Conversations With Friends is a romantic drama told over 12 half-hour episodes. The story follows the ménage-à-quatre between two Irish students, Frances (Alison Oliver) and Bobbi (Sasha Lane), and the older creative couple Nick (Joe Alwyn) and Melissa (Jemima Kirke). Frances and Nick — the shy and introverted members of this quartet —develop a passionate affair, which puts a strain on her relationship with Bobbi and his marriage to Melissa.
