Seductive Trailer For ‘Miss Julie’ Starring Jessica Chastain & Colin Farrell

19 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s always interesting to see actors get involved with different levels of movie making and both Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell hold a great presence in the big movies and the smaller ones, the latter applying to this first trailer for Miss Julie.

Directed by Liv Ullmann (Faithless, Persona) and co-starring the excellent Samantha Morton, this first look is full of a sensual nature that’s simmering around boiling point, Miss Julie depicts a fierce battle between a man and a woman, a struggle for power and dominance shown through a cruel and compulsive game of seduction and repulsion – And already looks miles more intelligent than the likes of 50 Shades…

Set on a country estate in Ireland in the 1880s and over the course of one midsummer night, Miss Julie and John, her father’s valet, dance and drink, charm and manipulate each other. As things turn seductive and savage, »

Miss Julie trailer sets up a psychological love triangle

17 November 2014 9:25 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Colin Farrell finds himself in a love triangle between Jessica Chastain and Samantha Morton in the new trailer for Miss Julie.

Directed by actress Liv Ullmann, the former muse of Swedish auteur Ingmar BergmanMiss Julie is adapted from the 1888 play by August Strindberg.  Don’t let the sordid story of servants and their mistress fool you into thinking this is a “Downton Abbey”-esque romance.  It’s more of an uncomfortable look at the mind games and lusty desires that exist between classes in 1890 Ireland.

When the master of the house is away, his daughter Julie will play mistress to her father’s valet John (Farrell) and his fiancé the cook Kathleen (Morton), beginning a game of psychological undoing.  Filmed and treated as if it were a play unfolding on the stage, the trio are the only actors to appear in the film, save for a flashback sequence.

Jessica Chastain And Colin Farrell Get Steamy In U.S. Trailer For Miss Julie

14 November 2014 2:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a string of international previews, clips and images, the first U.S. trailer for Liv Ullman’s Miss Julie has finally surfaced online. The period drama is Ullman’s third jaunt behind the camera after a lengthy acting stint that included a long-time working relationship with Ingmar Bergman. This of course begs the question, will the influence of her mentor be detected in her latest piece?

Based on August Strindberg’s play of the same name, the film revolves around the relationship between lofty high-society lass Julie (Jessica Chastain) and a lackey in her father’s employ named John (Colin Farrell). The idea of the pair romantically connected via a series of dialogue-heavy scenes is one that intrigues.

Farrell’s got a hefty command of his emotions in this new preview, and Chastain is as impressive as ever with her aristocratic schtick. Backing up the pair as devil’s »

Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell Are Playing with Fire in New Miss Julie Trailer

14 November 2014 1:16 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The U.S. trailer for director Liv Ullmann’s adaptation of the August Strindberg stage play Miss Julie has been released online.  The film stars Jessica Chastain as a daring young woman who strikes up a flirtation with an overwhelmed valet (Colin Farrell) right under the nose of his fiancée (Samantha Morton).  Ullmann’s adaptation is simplistic in nature, as it merely revolves around these three characters and the emotions at play.  The film premiered at Tiff to a so-so response, but it looks to be a swell acting showcase for this trio of incredibly talented performers. Check out the new Miss Julie trailer after the jump, and be sure to check out Steve’s video interviews with Chastain and Ullmann from Tiff.  Miss Julie opens in theaters on December 5th.

Ciff: “Miss Julie” and “The Editor”

22 October 2014 9:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here are two films from the Chicago International Film Festival that couldn’t be more different.

First up I was Miss Julie, based on the play of the same title by August Strindber, directed by Liv Ullmann and stars Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, and a pug. The general plot is simple, but the drama and themes, are rich and complex as it focuses on a single night where the daughter of a wealthy aristocrat seduces on of her servants. I’m not just saying this because of Ullmann’s legendary collaborations, but the film really does feel like a modern Ingmar Bergman film, particularly Through a Glass Darkly and Cries and Whispers. It is a highly emotional film about the dichotomy between sex and love and the pressures of class based societies. It is also an excellent actor’s showcase, with three powerful performances.

14 October 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

14 year old newcomer Archie Cox from Cirencester has landed the lead role in the new BBC adaptation of Laurie Lee's classic memoir of the Cotswolds, Cider With Rosie.

The casting directors searched local Gloucestershire schools to find boys with authentic accents and spotted Archie, who they described as "an exciting new discovery", despite the fact that he has no previous acting experience.

Archie will star as Laurie know as 'Lol' in the story which chronicles his journey from boy to man, first love, loss and family upheaval. Lol’s boyhood escapades take place in a rural world as yet untouched by electricity and cars - a place suspended between history and modernity.

Fellow newcomer Ruby Ashbourne Serkis (represented by Lou Coulson), the 16 year old daughter of actors Andy Serkis and Lorraine Ashbourne, will play the author's cousin, the Rosie of the title.

Review: The Harvest

12 October 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

On screen, the parents of seriously ill children are often (probably quite accurately) portrayed as unsung heroes, battling the system, denying themselves, and doing everything they can to protect their kids. In The Harvest, the long overdue return to cinema from Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer director John McNaughton, it’d be easy to initially mistake Samantha Morton’s character, Katherine, for one of these parents. But it soon becomes clear just how completely off the mark this impression is.

The film focuses on Katherine’s relationship with her pre-teen son, Andy (Charlie Tahan). Andy is sick. He’s so sick, he can’t walk. He needs a cocktail of specialised drugs, which Katherine, a doctor, breaks the law to obtain for him. At first, her overprotectiveness seems understandable, if a little intense. But things get worse. Andy mustn’t have friends: friends might infect him. He mustn’t ever go outside. »
