Shannon: Chastain is so giving

Jessica Chastain will make a great mum some day, her Take Shelter co-star Michael Shannon has said. The US actor plays a paranoid man experiencing apocalyptic visions in the drama, with Jessica starring as his wife and mother to their young daughter, played by Tova Stewart. Michael said of Jessica: “She has a big, big heart. She’s so compassionate and

The Great Unknown

This article was written at Sueddeutsche Zeitung Magazine by Andrew Gumbel and translated by us. The great unknown longingly waits for the film world in a new Meryl Streep. We have found it: Jessica Chastain. Although the woman was still barely visible in the cinema, she is already celebrated by all of Hollywood. And rightly so. Do you know Jessica

Jessica: Even ‘Take Shelter’ extras awed by co-star Michael Shannon

TORONTO – “Take Shelter” has emerged as one of the most acclaimed films of the fall season, thanks in large part to a devastating performance by star Michael Shannon. His quietly powerful turn as a small-town family man beset by increasingly horrifying dreams drew whispers of Oscar predictions when the movie screened at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. But

Cursed with Success

There’s nothing we like better than an overnight success story but Jessica Chastain’s feels just too good to be true. A perfect storm of Chastain movies, swelled by critical adulation, is brewing in what looks like a co-ordinated assault on the awards season. Earlier this year was a taster, with the release of Terrence Malick’s winner at Cannes, The Tree

The lavish ubiquity of Jessica Chastain

It’s become a rare experience to sit down to a movie and discover that Jessica Chastain’s not in it, says Tim Robey. When the cast for Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life was announced, there was one name no one could put to a face. As far as we knew, “Jessica Chastain” might have been some exotically-plumed bird Malick had

Review: Acting superb, casting questionable in ‘The Debt’

“The Debt” is a compelling espionage thriller with a casting decision that prevents this otherwise outstanding production from being one of the best dramas of the year. Skipping back and forth between events in 1966 and 1997, the story centers on three Israeli agents on a secret mission in East Berlin at the height of the Cold War. Based on

New York Moves – Summer issue

As you already know, Jessica was cover of “New York Moves” magazine in their Summer issue. I haven’t found the magazine to do a proper scan yet, but the website actually have posted the interview with a small view of the image used inside. You can find both cover and this preview in our gallery, as also some behind-the-scenes photos

The Fall Girl: Jessica Chastain

This interview alongside this cover was published at Movieline, at their August catch-up from most interesting subjects of the month: Jessica Chastain on Breakthroughs, Big Years and the Awards-Season Crash Course By virtually any Hollywood standard, even if another film featuring Jessica Chastain weren’t released in 2011 after this week, she’d have already had a pretty phenomenally successful rookie year

Jessica Chastain on Breakthroughs, Big Years and the Awards-Season Crash Course

By virtually any Hollywood standard, even if another film featuring Jessica Chastain weren’t released in 2011 after this week, she’d have already had a pretty phenomenally successful rookie year in the business. It’s kind of staggering, really: Months after her vivid if vexingly underseen screen debut in Jolene, there was no missing Chastain on the Croisette as she and The

The Starlet: Jessica Chastain

With The Help, The Debt, and four other movies out this year, Jessica Chastain might just be the busiest actress in Hollywood. It’s not hard to understand why Jessica Chastain headed to a motocross course to blow off steam after the Cannes film festival in May. Not only had two of the 30-year-old actress’s movies screened there—Terrence Malick’s The Tree
