“The truth is,” Ana de Armas purrs in the first full trailer for Hulu’s erotic thriller Deep Water, “if you were married to anyone else, you’d be so bored you’d kill yourself.” Sounds like a perfectly healthy and not at all toxic foundation for a relationship!
De Armas’ Melinda Van Allen utters that threatening thought as she returns home to her husband Vic, played by the actress’ real-life ex Ben Affleck, after spending the night with another man. She brazenly flaunts her affair, strutting around with tousled hair and last night’s little black dress.
In the film, adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s 1957 novel, de Armas and Affleck’s perfect-on-paper marriage is actually fraught with mind games, steamy extramarital affairs, and–oh yeah, that’s right–the occasional murder. De Armas’ Melinda seems to hold the cards in the relationship, locking eyes with Affleck as she makes out with another man, wears a wardrobe consisting entirely of cleavage-baring all-black outfits, and coolly says that her marriage to Vic has “always been a game.”
