The U.S. trailer for director Liv Ullmann’s adaptation of the August Strindberg stage play Miss Julie has been released online. The film stars Jessica Chastain as a daring young woman who strikes up a flirtation with an overwhelmed valet (Colin Farrell) right under the nose of his fiancée (Samantha Morton). Ullmann’s adaptation is simplistic in nature, as it merely revolves around these three characters and the emotions at play. The film premiered at TIFF to a so-so response, but it looks to be a swell acting showcase for this trio of incredibly talented performers.
Check out the new Miss Julie trailer after the jump, and be sure to check out Steve’s video interviews with Chastain and Ullmann from TIFF. Miss Julie opens in theaters on December 5th.
