The plot centers on their notorious 1963 Argyll v Argyll divorce case, which was full of scandal and accusations of adultery, violence, and drug use.

The series also explores Britain’s attitude toward women in the 1960s. 

Foy and Bettany spoke about the film in a recent joint ABC News interview, with the actress saying, ‘I think it’s really interesting to view this and the way women were treated in the media and maybe the judicial system as well.’

She added, ‘It’s really interesting to see whether anything has changed now.’

It comes after last month Paul addressed a disturbing text message between himself and Johnny Depp in a new interview with The Times of London.

The WandaVision star called his text conversations with Depp ’embarrassing,’ and described the libel case that the 58-year-old Pirates Of The Caribbean actor launched against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 35, as ‘a very surreal moment.’

Bettany also claimed that his more jovial responses to Depp’s violent messages were due to falling out of touch with his former friend once he got married to Heard.

The Beautiful Mind actor said he ‘didn’t know Johnny when he was married to’ the Aquaman actress.

‘I knew him before. But we hadn’t spoken for years. During the marriage I didn’t know them. So I wasn’t around for any of that,’ he explained.

Despite his statement, the text messages were sent prior to Depp and Heard’s marriage, though it was years after they had started dating.

‘We live in a world without context,’ he added, referencing reports of his connection to Depp that emerged during the libel suit.

‘I know how this works. Anything that you say is oxygen for a fire,’ he continued. ‘And there’s just no f***ing fire. 

‘The only real way to deal with this elegantly is to say: I’m not sure there’s anybody who has [a smartphone] that would feel comfortable having a team of lawyers scour their private text messages.’

Depp reportedly wrote ‘Let’s burn Amber!!!’ in a tweet to Bettany sent in 2013.

‘Having thought it through I don’t think we should burn Amber — she’s delightful company and easy on the eye, plus I’m not sure she’s a witch,’ the English actor reportedly replied. ‘We could of course try the English course of action in these predicaments ­— we do a drowning test. Thoughts?’

Depp reportedly escalated the messages into more disturbing, graphic territory, replying, ‘Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f*** her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she’s dead.’
