Starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy (and subtitled “Her” and “Him”), the two films tell of a young couple that falls in and out of love. Some of the scenes are unique to each film — McAvoy’s character may be seen talking about the relationship with a buddy in “Him”; Chastain’s character could open up to a friend in “Her.”
Many scenes, though, are common to both movies — they’re just shaded differently depending on whose movie you’re watching. So a word, a glance or a detail will look different, coming up as McAvoy might imagine it in “Him” than it would as Chastain sees it in “Her.”
Essentially, he’s taken the scalpel of literary subjectivity to the rich fodder of a relatable couple. By the time you’ve finished watching both movies, Benson hopes, you’ll have a complete if complicated picture of the relationship. Think, perhaps, of the multiple-voices conceit of “Rashomon,” the double-feature expansiveness of “Che” and the shifting narrative details of “Memento.” The films, which have not yet been bought by a U.S. distributor, are designed to be watched in succession, though in either order.
“What I wanted to capture was that feeling of looking across the table at a couple and trying to understand what their relationship is really like, and how they each experienced that relationship differently, ” Benson said in an interview.

SRG Films has set Vicente Amorim to direct Crossface, a feature adaptation of the Matthew Randazzo book Ring Of Hell: The Story Of Chris Benoit And The Fall Of The Pro Wrestling Industry. Amorim, who helmed the Viggo Mortensen-starrer Good, will chronicle the pressures that WWE superstar Chris Benoit faced through his wrestling career and how a lethal combination of drug-use, depression, and head trauma became unbearable for him. In 2007, Benoit murdered his wife and young son before taking his own life. Sarah Coulter wrote the script and production is expected to begin next year.
The news above was reported by Deadline a few days ago. Then our fellow from @TeamChastain gave us a heads up about an article published on Brazilian newspaper O Globo with more details on it – since Carlos Amorim is Brazilian – and in an interview with him, he tell about his desired actresses to play Benoit’s wife Nancy. He wants Jessica Chastain or Rachel McAdams for the part – but no contact has been made so far.
If we get more information, will be posted here.
One of the most intriguing films we’re anticipating at TIFF 2013 is “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her”, starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain in dual perspectives that tell the story of a married couple. The first official still image from the film has been released in the wake of this morning’s announcement that it will make its world premiere as Special Presentation in Toronto.
Described as an “innovative two-part film that relates a love story from two different perspectives,” McAvoy and Chastain play a married couple (he’s a restauranteur, she wants to go back to college) whose tumultuous relationship is told from each of their point of views, resulting in two films, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her.” With a runtime of 190 minutes, it appears the two films should and will be seen together. Nina Arianda, Viola Davis, Bill Hader, Ciarán Hinds, Isabelle Huppert, William Hurt, and Jess Weixler co-star.
“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her” will have its world premiere as a Special Presentation. See the first image of McAvoy and Chastain below.
