United States of Tara

TV-Series | USA 2009 | 2x30' | OV

Are you allowed to have sex with your wife at a moment when she believes to be a 15-year-old? Max’s wife Tara does not give him an easy time. She suffers from dissociative identity disorder, or, in simpler words: four personalities share Tara’s body. One is 15-year-old T, a wild girl, then there are Vietnam veteran Buck, God-fearing housewife Alice – and, of course, Tara herself. In her first comedy series, Oscar winner Diablo Cody (JUNO) again proves her knack for straight-out humor, and demonstrates a great degree of empathy. A brilliant Toni Collette plays the title role. The series was produced by Steven Spielberg.
