As we start making our festival schedules, cross-checking them with movies we want to see versus what scheduling conflicts will allow, it can mean that sometimes we need to be reminded about many high-profile movies coming our way. One to look out for over the next few weeks is Liv Ullman‘s “Miss Julie.” And the first two clips are here to give a taste of what the charged romance will be bringing to the cinematic table.
Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell lead the adaptation of August Strindberg‘s acclaimed play, about the love that develops between a valet and a young aristocratic woman. So what’s the big deal? Well, this was in an era where such a relationship across class lines was deemed unacceptable by most, but that won’t stop the pair here. In these scenes, we see the tortured feelings erupt in intriguing ways between the couple, with one heated sequence and another more tender moment.
“Miss Julie” will have its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Watch below.
