I’ll tell you a little bit. I’ll tell you about my character. I play a woman who is like a scientist. She’s super super smart and scientific and she’s not whole at the beginning when we see here. There’s an emotional part missing that we then wonder, ‘Does she become completed by the end? Is there that journey?’ I would say yes.
Trust me, there’s no way to over hype this film. I never talked like this about a film, but when I saw it I was like I don’t know what to do. It’s great.
Chastain worked most with Michael Caine.
There was one day we were doing a scene and they stopped and it was just Michael and I and they were changing the lighting,” she remembered. “I was of course asking him all these questions like, ‘Did you ever meet so and so? How as this experience? Tell me about this movie.’ There was a little bit of a break and he kind of looked away and I walked over to Christopher Nolan and I just went, ‘Thank you so much. I’ll remember this day forever.’ It was really special.

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 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.
