Miss Julie

Jessica Chastain is deliriously good as the daughter of an English baron, wielding her power to taunt Colin Farrell’s valet and his fiancée (formidable English actor Samantha Morton). Director Liv Ullmann exerts fastidious control over form, so that her actors might unleash something wild. Filmed in Northern Ireland, this is feverish, ferocious cinema.





On a baron’s country estate on the night of an annual Midsummer’s Eve celebration, Miss Julie (Jessica Chastain) directs her boredom and frustration toward her father’s valet (Colin Farrell), despite the present of his fiancée (Samantha Morton).
