Two new images of Jessica Chastain as Mrs Williams in Tar has been added to our gallery.
The film, which was shot around 2011, had its premiere in Rome Film Festival in 2012. However, it didn’t see the light for a while. A few months ago, Signature Entertainment has signed to distribute the movie on DVD (in UK) under the title “Forever Love”, which came out last October 27 on Amazon UK.

While we don’t have any news regarding an US release, IMDB has changed the film title now as The Color of Time, so maybe we’ll have news about it soon.

TAR is based on Pulitzer prize-winning poet CK Williams’ collection of the same name. The film takes us on a journey through several decades of American life from CK’s childhood and adolescence in Detroit in the 1940s and 50s to the early 1980s: CK (James Franco) and his wife Catherine (Mila Kunis) are married with their son Jed (name of actor). CK prepares for a reading of Tar in New York City, and spends his nights struggling to write new poems, haunted by memories of his past. The film takes us back and forth between past and present, punctuated by voice-over from CK Williams’ poems, recreating the experience of memory and exploring how the fragments of one’s man life can be turned into poetic expression: his loving relationship to his mother (Jessica Chastain), his first sexual experiences as a teenager (Henry Hopper), his first love (Nina Ljeti) and the struggle to preserve a form of innocence and wonder, the illness and loss of a close friend (Zach Braff), and finally his life together with Catherine.
