The first trailer for Liv Ullmann's highly anticipated new film Miss Julie (2014) has emerged. The film, which will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this year, stars Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, and Samantha Morton.
Official synopsis: Liv Ullmann, the star of numerous Ingmar Bergmann classics, brings August Strindberg's play Miss Julie to the big screen. Set in 19th century, the play tackles themes of power, class and sex in a decidedly Scandinavian (read: rather bleak) fashion. The titular heroine, played by Jessica Chastain, is a noble lady who falls for the particularly well-mannered senior servant Jean (Colin Farrell). Soon their blooming romance turns into a play of power, in which it never is clear who has the upper hand.
