The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby has an intriguing premise. It is a double feature that explores “how a married couple in New York City deals with an emotional, life-altering experience, from two different perspectives.” The perspective of the husband (James McAvoy), a restaurateur, is seen in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him, while the story of the wife (Jessica Chastain), who is going back to school, is told in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her. The first images from the film have been released, and we can see one of the ways writer/director Ned Benson has chosen to approach the project.
Hit the jump for more. The film also stars Viola Davis, Bill Hader, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert, Ciarin Hinds, and Jess Weixler. [Update: We’ve taken down the images at the request of the production company.]
As you can see, the husband’s storyline is done with dark, blue palette whereas the wife’s storyline is done with bright, golden colors. I’m curious to see how the cinematography will play out beyond the color palette and other differences between the two films.
