The Film Stage has published today a set of new images of Jessica and Colin Farrel on upcoming Miss Julie, as well a (beautiful) poster.
Taking place at a large country estate in Britain over the course of one 1880s midsummer night, Miss Julie explores the brutal, flirtatious power struggle between Julie and John – a young aristocratic woman and her father’s valet.
She is all hauteur longing for abasement; he, polished but coarse. The two of them held together by mutual loathing and attraction. At turns seductive and tender, savage and bullying, their story builds inevitably to a mad, impulsive tryst. Plans are made in desperation, a vision of a life together – unsure if the morning light then brings hope or hopelessness, Julie and John find their escape in an act that is as sublime and horrific as anything in Greek tragedy.
Liv Ullman’s Miss Julie will skillfully weave this great original story of the battle between the sexes and the classes.
Miss Julie is expected to premiere in the fall and is seeking U.S. distribution.

The Hollywood Reporter released some pictures they took on Cannes, and of course Jessica is among it.
The festival is ending today, and due all positive reviews The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby received we’re already waiting for a high campaign eyeing the awards season. I hope they can release soon some promotional material!

I’ve been teasing – on twitter – our visitors with some images of ‘Tar’, the James Franco film that tells the story of poet C. K. Williams. The movie was filmed back in December/2011 and it’s being awaited for us since then. Its first release was during the Rome Festival in 2012, and after that only two screenings in Austin and New York were done last year.
According to IMDb, the movie title was renamed to ‘Forever Love‘ for its UK release, and our friend @billskaleski has confirmed by sending us the Amazon link. So, the film has a September/2014 release on UK – and the pre-order is available on 8 Sep 2014.
The film was recently released in Australia – sources says May 14, and I wrote the USA/AU distributors for more information regarding any DVD release of theatrical date if any. Stay tuned!
And follow us at @ChastainNetwork for more information.

Vulture did a great interview with Jessica Chastain while in Cannes, as you can read below:
What’s it been like for you to have Him and Her cut into one movie?
It’s tough because, to be honest, they were envisioned as Him and Her — the idea of the male perspective and the female perspective. But, you know, in thinking about it, it’s like, okay, Olivier Assayas made a great film called Carlos that’s five hours long, and that’s the one I saw. There’s also a two-hour version of it that’s also really good, and most Americans saw the two-hour version. [Laughs] So it’s a situation like that. We saw the choices. The audience will be given the opportunity. They can see Him and Her, or they can see Them.
What’s your recommendation?
Well, for the cinephiles and the people who really want to commit, I would definitely say, “See Him and Her.” It’s the full experience.
