A multi-generational, coming-of-age love story disguised as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time. An anniversary trip puts a marriage to the test when the couple finds themselves embroiled in one of the Mayan Riviera’s most bizarre unsolved mysteries that took place fifteen years prior.


Criticólogos:

We are coming to you Live from San Juan, Puerto Rico, so the first question that I’ve asked everyone, was about dealing with the humidity and our lovely weather. Did you were able to survive? 

Nina Bloomgarden:

We survived. We had so much fun. I mean, I think I think it’s definitely a big shift to go from, like, fast paced, like New York or L.A. to like, island time. But, I mean, it’s so beautiful over there. And we really all bonded at like the beaches and the rainforest, and we went hiking. And you guys have, like, an incredible light. Like, we went out in Old San Juan, like, every weekend. And we had yeah, we had so much fun out there, and I don’t think we’d have we would have had that much fun had we been in New York or in L.A. or somewhere else. 

Criticólogos:

I want to ask you, this one of your biggest first big projects? And you obviously you had to work alongside Nick Offerman, obviously, but also you had your picture in the poster. So I want to know, how did you reacted when you saw that. I’m in the poster of the promo of the project?

Nina Bloomgarden:

Oh, I mean, this is this is wild like a year ago. Like, like not even you’re like six months ago. I wouldn’t have thought that would have been possible. I was in a very different place like six months ago. So seeing that, I’m just I feel so lucky and I feel so lucky that it was this project that that that I got because it’s the writing is incredible. The team is incredible. The directors were all incredible like Andy Siara, Ben Sinclair, like Sam Esmail, Chad Hamilton, Alison Miller, like just that group and then this cast. Like it’s it’s a dream come true. 

Criticólogos:

Let’s talk about working with Nick. Did he give you any pointers. Did you learn something from him. Or did he just go, just do you?

Nina Bloomgarden:

A little bit of everything? I mean, he was great. And us in scenes together, you know, I really had to kind of calm myself down and be like, just play off of him. Like, that’s all you got to do. And he was so kind and so generous and giving. And one of our scenes, I think it was, was improvised where we’re talking about chopsticks. He was actually teaching me how to use chopsticks because he had spent like a year in Japan and like, yeah, so and he’s just, he’s just so gracious and has so many stories. And I learned a lot on screen and I learned a lot offscreen from him. 

Criticólogos:

You also work with Skyler Gisondo, he’s also somebody that had done so much on his career already. Did he gave you any pointers while working with him? He seems to be like a real jokester. 

Nina Bloomgarden:

He is. I mean, he is and he isn’t. He can he’s very he’s always very prepared and very like on it. And and just like a master. And you can see the way he prepares changes from project to project. And I think that was really interesting to talk to him about and talk about how he prepares for a scene. Because I come from like more of a theater background where I did a lot of theater in college. And so switching to film on TV was kind of big change with preparation and everything. So talking with Skyler about it was great and and he was such an easy person to work with and talk to and everything. Yeah. 

Criticólogos:

How did you relate to Violet,  I think that Violet is something that a lot of will girls can relate to when it comes to dealing with her dad, growth up and exploring relationships. How did you relate to that with the character? 

Nina Bloomgarden:

Yeah. I mean, I related to her massively. She’s she was going through the loss of a parents. And when I got this role, I was going through the loss of a parent and we were dealing with it in different ways. But I think it’s really important to show grief at that at that age and how hard it is to talk to your parents about it and be vulnerable with your parents. And also showing that grief isn’t always so sad. It’s numb. It’s it can be you know, you can poke fun at it sometimes. And her I think her relationship with Skyler really shows up and showcases that. But you don’t have to be talking about it and everything. It can just sit there and that’s okay.
