“I became an actress because I love movies,” said Chastain, star of the drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. She’s a festival darling not only for her performances but for her screening attendance record: “Any chance I get, I’m going into the theater.”
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.
Jessica posted today on her Instagram a look of that photoshoot she did at the beach during Cannes festival, and it happens to be from People:
We’ll be posting the scans asap.

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!
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.
Yesterday Jessica attended a press conference at the Cannes Film Festival, and I have a few MQ pictures added to our gallery. Also, over 100 additional HQ pictures from last night’s amfAR has been added as well.
Jessica looked stunning earlier today, when arrived at the red carpet for amfAR’s 2014 Cinema Against AIDS Gala, in a black Givenchy dress with a stunning necklace by Tesiro. I have the first batch of pictures added, as you can see by following the previews below:
Interview: Jessica Chastain on Cannes, Her Wonderful Facebook Page, and Having to Keep Interstellar Secrets
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.
Photos of Jessica arriving today at ‘Le Grand Journal’ TV Show in Cannes has now been added to the gallery:
