About this show

In a school in a small-town west of Ireland, Connell (Paul Mescal) is a well-liked, good looking and athletic football player. Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) is a proud, intimidating and unpopular loner who actively avoids her classmates and challenges teachers’ authority. Sparks fly between the two when Connell comes to pick up his mother Lorraine (Sarah Greene) from her job at Marianne’s house and a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers – one they are determined to conceal from their peers. A compulsive modern love story, Normal People sees the pair weave in and out of each other’s lives and explores just how complicated intimacy and young love can be.
