It was hard to go anywhere in 2022 without seeing the eye-catching pink cover for Lessons in Chemistry. As soon as the book hit the shelves, it was a bestseller and this debut only continues to gain momentum. When it was announced that Apple TV+ would be bringing Bonnie Garmus’ novel to the small screen, fans were thrilled to be getting an adaptation so soon. And now, the first trailer has dropped giving us a glimpse of Brie Larson’s portrayal of the enigmatic main character Elizabeth Zott.
Elizabeth Zott is a chemist, working for the Hastings Research Institute in the 1960s. Her status is hardly befitting her talent in the male-dominated world of science, but she catches the eye of a quiet, brilliant Calvin Evans. Despite the chemistry, Elizabeth finds herself in the throes of single motherhood, hosting a cooking show just a few years later. Though she’s hardly in her space of genius, she finds a way to use the broadcast to infuse the culture with a daring approach to womanhood that begs her audience to shift the status quo.
A #1 New York Times bestseller and a GMA Book Club Pick, Lessons in Chemistry is sure to excite readers and viewers with this timeless story.
