The Diplomat Season 1
The show “The Diplomat” is primarily about marriage, but it also deals with the dynamics of the world order, striking the right balance between idealism and realpolitik, and the effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. To put it mildly, it is absurd that Kate is depicted as the undiplomatic diplomat, a woman whose steel-trap strategic skills would be considered appropriate for the Court of St. James’s. However, Kate’s portrayal serves primarily to contrast Kate with Hal, who is smoother, more cunning, and more obviously diplomatic. You can see why Russell’s portrayal of Kate in “The Americans” was so beautifully cold-blooded. Russell is fully capable of portraying the character’s intelligence and, when necessary, her confusion or wrath, but she is not as amusing as the play requires. Her abilities are not in settling into the part or giving the emotional relationships the casual, spontaneous feel that the rom-com framework demands. Fortunately for “The Diplomat,” Sewell has no issue channeling his inner Barrymore and ends up winning the film. Hal is obstinate, immature, and conceited, but he is clever and charming enough to get away with it, and Sewell both exudes the charm and conveys the moments of uncertainty and noble character that ultimately save Hal. Making Hal feel completely real is a trick on par with preventing world war. Hal is an over-the-top, too-good-to-be-true romantic construct.
