Lens for Cinematic Look, subtle sharpness, neutral out of focus areas

Hi Community!

I love this show: The End of the F***ing World. Anybody seen it?:

Here are some stills:

I am intrigued by the natural feel of the out-of-focus-areas. I am aware that other things play into the overall look (grading, lighting etc.). I already found out, the it was shot on a 8K RED camera with a full-framish sensor und with Zeiss Supreme Primes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYm7aLSYVnQ). Funny enough I found out later watching this video, that they constructed them for "very smooth transition between in-focus and out of focus areas and gentle sharpness". The more or less all have T1.5.

Now my question: Do you know any lenses that have this kind of rendering? I am especially interested in the WIDE-anglish shots. Did they just use tele-photoish lenses and filmed from farther away? Any guesses on the focal-lengths?

I also have an negative example of a lens know for its good bokeh, the Sony 50 1.4: https://web.500px.com/photo/1005602296/Aggro-by-Andreas-Joachim-Lins/?ctx_page=1
Here I find the out-of-focus areas unpleasing, it looks like the background is double-exposed, with the edges of complex structures looking busy or like being exposed to long. I hope you get me?
Thanks for solving the puzzle with me!
