Last night, Miss Julie gets its premiere at the Chicago International Film Festival. Jessica wasn’t there, but Colin Farrell and Liv Ullmann attended it. This week it was also reported that Miss Julie has secured Canadian distribution via Pacific Northwest Pictures. Wrekin Hill Entertainment earlier acquired all U.S. rights to Ullmann’s film.
“We are so thrilled to bring this incredible film with across the board great performances to Canada and also so pleased to be working with Wild Bunch again on another high quality film,” Pacific Northwest Pictures vp Emily Alden said in a statement.
The lovelies Jessica Chastain and Jess Weixler visited yesterday the Good Day LA, to promote The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Him/Her. They talked a little bit about the film, their friendship, and Jessica once again mentioned bullying, still following her Glamour interview.

A new beautiful poster, this time for the double feature ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him/Her‘ has been released.
The films hits selected theaters today, after being released in the combined version ‘Them’ last month. Indiewire has published an interesting interview with Kristina Boden about the film edition (it has some spoilers in the interview). Also, she told a little bit about which film you need to see first:
For the movies’ theatrical release, “Him” is being screened first in some locations, while others are starting with “Her.” Which order would you recommend?
Everybody has a different reaction to it. Because I started editing the films that way, it’s always my preference to see “Him” and then “Her.” I think that’s also because Eleanor is more complicated. If you start with “Him,” you get Conor’s energy and Eleanor’s mystery. Then, when you’re a third of a way into “Her,” there’s this amazing “A-ha!” moment where you realize “I’m seeing the story again, only through her point of view.” And then the pieces start to fit together. But some people think it’s more engaging to watch it the other way, with the introspection of “Her” and then “Him” filling in the gaps about who Conor is.
Jessica was interviewed by the spanish magazine Fotogramas while she was in Spain to promote The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby at the San Sebastian festival. Watch it:
Last Saturday (27) Jessica was photographed in Manhattan (New York) wearing a beautiful t-shirt of “To Write Love On Her Arms” (a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide). She discussed it with Yahoo as well, in an interview while promoting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (you can read the whole interview behind the cut).
It’s a dark side of celebrity culture that reflects a wider attitude.
To me, that shows that we have a long ways to go. I’m thinking that if someone is dealing with depression, you can’t trust that person to reach out to you in a society that doesn’t really welcome that. So, that’s what I’m hoping changes with organizations that deal with suicide prevention and depression. There’s this particular organization called To Write Love on Her Arms — this one starts in high schools, where it’s especially difficult dealing with bullying, for people discovering their sexuality. There’s so much happening in high schools. I’m really passionate about this organization, and it’s just newly come into my life.
How did you hear about this organization?
I started searching online. I never talk about this, and I can’t believe what I’m going to say right now — I know my publicist is going, “What are you talking about?” But I do have — my sister killed herself. And that is in my history. So, for me, suicide is a very important issue. If I can do anything to help someone move through any darkness that they’re in, I’m gonna do whatever I can to help. It’s so important to begin the conversation when they’re in high school, because that’s when we’re getting programmed as to what’s acceptable in society. It should be acceptable to talk about your feelings.
