“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!
