At school, Connell (Paul Mescal) and Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) pretend not to know each other. But when Connell collects his mother from her job at Marianne’s house, a strange, indelible connection grows, one they’re determined to conceal. Later, they’re both studying at Trinity College, where Marianne is popular and Connell shyer, more uncertain. During their time, they circle one another, straying toward other people but always magnetically drawn back together.
