Story


Taking place at a large country estate in Britain over the course of one 1880s midsummer night, Miss Julie explores the brutal, flirtatious power struggle between Julie and John - a young aristocratic woman and her father's valet.

She is all hauteur longing for abasement; he, polished but coarse. The two of them held together by mutual loathing and attraction. At turns seductive and tender, savage and bullying, their story builds inevitably to a mad, impulsive tryst. Plans are made in desperation, a vision of a life together - unsure if the morning light then brings hope or hopelessness, Julie and John find their escape in an act that is as sublime and horrific as anything in Greek tragedy.

Liv Ullman's Miss Julie will skillfully weave this great original story of the battle between the sexes and the classes.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is an austere, pared-down take that does one thing extremely well: It allows actors Jessica Chastain, Samantha Morton and especially Colin Farrell to shine..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..running more than two hours, the film also seems in need of paring. Gorgeous as Chastain is to look at in her heavy blue gown, we can see the writing on the wall for her - and the messy conclusion is rather a long time in coming..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
