‘Miss Julie’ Trailer: Jessica Chastain & Colin Farrell Enter Strindberg’s Universe

MissJulie

It’s been an eventful year for Jessica Chastain, thanks to her work this year on Interstellar and the relationship drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.

Although she’s done solid work in both films, Chastain is getting the most awards talk for her work in the upcoming films A Most Violent Year and Miss Julie.

Opening December 5, Miss Julie is directed by Liv Ullmann, whose illustrious career includes starring in the Ingmar Bergman classics Persona, Cries & Whispers, and Scenes of a Marriage. With Ullmann behind the camera doing her interpretation of August Strindberg’s renowned play, it’s easy to see why Colin Farrell and Jessica Chastain signed on the dotted line.

The movie’s official boilerplate is below:

Miss Julie depicts a fierce battle between a man and a woman, a struggle for power and dominance enacted through a cruel and compulsive game of seduction and repulsion.

A country estate in Ireland in 1880s. Over the course of one midsummer night, in an atmosphere of wild revelry and loosened social constraints, Miss Julie and John, her father’s valet, dance and drink, charm and manipulate each other. She, all hauteur longing for abasement; he, polished but coarse – both united in mutual loathing and attraction.

By turns seductive and bullying, savage and tender, their intimacy leads to desperate plans and vision of a life together… Unsure if the morning brings hope or hopelessness, Julie and John find their escape in a final act as sublime and horrific as anything in Greek tragedy.

Miss Julie opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 5. The trailer is below:
