STARZ | 7:13 pm

Director Julius Sevcik's 2019 adaptation of Simon Mawer's novel "The Glass House" opens in 1930s Czechoslovakia, where wealthy newlyweds Liesel and Viktor (Hanna Alstrom, Claes Bang) have commissioned a famous architect to build them a new home that becomes the talk of the countryside. The main relationship examined in the story, however, is the one between Liesel and her lifelong friend Hana (Carice van Houten, "Game of Thrones"), whose feelings for Hana seem to transcend the platonic.
