With Cannes now out of the way, three major festivals—Venice, Telluride and Toronto—are on the horizon, where even more new films will unspool for the first time. And one we’re hoping/expecting to see is “Miss Julie” starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell. And today a batch of new images and a poster have dropped for the movie.
Liv Ullman directs her first film in over twelve years, adapting August Strindberg‘s acclaimed play, follows Julie and John who fall into an affair as passionate as it is savage, with their plans for escape to a new life together resulting in something tragic. Basically, it’s great material in the hands of three people who can probably bring some fiery life to the tale.
No U.S. distributor for this one yet, but we’re sure that’ll be sorted out soon enough. [The Film Stage]
