Following today's news that Liv Ullmann's MISS JULIE, starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell will have its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, an all-new international trailer has been released for the film. Get a first look below!
Liv Ullmann directs her first film in more than a decade with MISS JULIE, starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton.
Miss Julie is a naturalistic play written in 1888 by August Strindberg dealing with class, love, lust, the battle of the sexes, and the interaction among them. Set on a midsummer night of 1874, on the estate of a Count in Sweden, the young woman of the title, attempting to escape an existence cramped by social mores and have a little fun, dances at the servants' annual midsummer party, where she is drawn to a senior servant, a footman named Jean, who is particularly well-traveled, well-mannered and well-read. The action takes place in the kitchen of Miss Julie's father's manor; here Jean's fiancée, a servant named Kristin, cooks and sometimes sleeps while Jean and Miss Julie talk.
Chastain made her Broadway debut in The Heiress as 'Catherine Sloper'. Her film projects include Zero Dark Thirty, for which she picked up a Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Drama, and the horror film Mama.
