“Succession” Meets “Stranger Things” and “Avatar” as Animated “My Love Affair with Marriage” Sets Summer Release


Eventually “Succession” and “Stranger Things” had to meet “Avatar” somehow.

Now “My Love Affair with Marriage,” an animated film directed by Signe Baumane and featuring the voices of Matthew Modine, Stephen Lang, and Dagmara Dominczyk, is headed to theaters and streaming this summer thanks to MVD Entertainment.

“My Love Affair With Marriage” — a New York Times Critics Pick– premiered at the Tribeca Festival in June 2022 and went on to screen at over 110 film festivals around the world winning 25 awards. Baumane recently completed a 24-city tour around the U.S., presenting the film to audiences, holding Q&As and giving away original drawings from the film.

The highly praised film also stars Michele Pawk and Cameron Monaghan.

Set against a backdrop of historic events in Eastern Europe, “My Love Affair With Marriage” follows Zelma (Dominczyk), who navigates through a series of romantic encounters, each one shaping her understanding of love and marriage.

My Love Affair With Marriage was produced by Signe Baumane, Raoul Nadalet, Roberts Vinovskis and Sturgis Warner and executive produced by John Jencks, Adam Rackoff and Matthew Modine.
