Winona Ryder & John Turturro get married in The Plot Against America episode 5 promo
HBO has released the first promo for The Plot Against America’s upcoming fifth and penultimate episode, featuring John Turturro’s Rabbi Lionel and Winona Ryder’s Evelyn as they get married while the Levin family continues to struggle with the new rules that were forced upon them by the Lindbergh government. The new episode is set to premiere on April 13. Check out the video in the player below!
Directed by Thomas Schlamme from a script written by co-creator Ed Burns, the new episode’s official synopsis reads: “Evelyn makes Sandy the face of the “Just Folks” program, despite Bess’ and Herman’s objections. A war casualty, Alvin takes a menial job and tries to regroup.”
Based on the novel by Philip Roth, The Plot Against America six-part miniseries imagines an alternate American history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they watch the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist who becomes president and turns the nation toward fascism.
The series stars Golden Globe winner Winona Ryder (Stranger Things) as Evelyn Finkel, Golden Globe nominee John Turturro (The Night Of) as Rabbi Lionel Bengelsdorf and Emmy nominee Zoe Kazan (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Olive Kitteridge) as Elizabeth “Bess” Levin. It will also feature Morgan Spector (Homeland) as Herman Levin, Anthony Boyle (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) as Alvin Levin, Azhy Robertson (Juliet, Naked) as Philip Levin, and newcomer Caleb Malis as Sandy Levin.
The Plot Against America is written and executive produced by David Simon and Ed Burns. Joe Roth, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, Nina K. Noble, Annapurna’s Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, and Susan Goldberg will also executive produce. Co-executive producers include Dennis Stratton and Philip Roth.
