Expats Official Trailer Is Released Now! Check Out!

Prime has released the trailer for their highly anticipated series Expats, based on Janice Y.K. Lee’s best-selling novel The Expatriates. The vibrant and chaotic drama, directed by Lulu Wang, will consist of six episodes.

Expats | Official Trailer

Expats’ trailer features an ethereal Nicole Kidman as Margaret, who lives an idyllic life and is friendly to her local household workers and a blissful family.

Sometimes, she wants to be alone, free of any imposed identity. As an expatriate trophy wife with only one expatriate friend going through a divorce, the story unfolds when she meets a new friend with a young Mercy, who wants to start again at 24.

However, the result is a taut drama involving a lost child, sorrowful parents, a forever-guilty caretaker who was present with the child till his absence, and a woman who has no idea why she is living and breathing in a country that was never hers, but her distant husband’s.

Expats’ gloomy trailer establishes the story’s tone, and you can sense the consequences of the tragedy in every scene. This is set against the background of an ever-vibrant Hong Kong, which creates a strong contrast between what the women are feeling on the inside and what is going on outside their lives.

The opening narration of Kidman’s character Margaret also represents the difficulties of a post-traged life and the kinds of relationships we set up with people from all countries and backgrounds throughout our lives.
