Based on August Strindberg’s revolutionary play about class struggle and the emancipation of women this production is set in Ireland on a large country estate in the 1880s.
Starring Jessica Chastain as the aristocratic Miss Julie and Colin Farrell as Jean the valet, all rigid social boundaries are smashed over the course of one long midsummer night’s revelry in a wild atmosphere, fuelled by alcohol and dancing .
United in mutual loathing and attraction, Miss Julie and Jean’ desperate desire to be united in a life together is full of dark drama and passion. The film also stars Samantha Morton and is directed by one of the icons of Scandinavian screen and stage, Liv Ullmann.
