The two are polar opposites, as Connell is popular while Marianne is lonely and intimidating. However, when they meet, their connection grows, and they work to keep it under wraps.
Later, their roles change as Marianne becomes more confident in a different environment while Connell is on the sidelines. However, they continue to fade in and out of each other’s lives to varying degrees.
Hulu said of the series: ‘Honest, smart and intoxicating, ‘Normal People’…explores just how complicated intimacy and young love can be.’
