First Clip Of Jessica Chastain & Colin Farrell In MISS JULIE
Acclaimed actress and director Liv Ullmann's upcoming stage-to-screen adaptation of August Strindberg's MISS JULIE is set to premiere later this year and a new clip showcasing film stars Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell in costume and in action is now available to view.
Recent Oscar nominee and ZERO DARK THIRTY Golden Globe winner Chastain and IN BRUGES Golden Globe-winner Farrell make up the characters comprising the central illicit coupling of John and Miss Julie, with Samantha Morton portraying misbegotten, once-betrothed Kristin in the classic, tragic romantic drama depicting a battle of the sexes fit for the record books.
Shooting on the film wrapped last year in Nortern Ireland, with Ullmann directing from her own script.
The official synopsis of MISS JULIE is as follows: "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."
No release date has yet been set, but MISS JULIE is expected to be released sometime later this year.
