Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell Play Sex and Power Game in 'Miss Julie' Trailer

Based on the popular Swedish play of the same name, 'Miss Julie' explores the battle between two sexes and classes.

The first trailer of "Miss Julie" has been released to reveal the story about battle of sexes and classes. Jessica Chastain stars as the titular character in the film based on the 1888 Swedish play of the same name, starring opposite Colin Farrell as a servant she's having an affair with.

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. In the trailer, Miss Julie was seen wandering off to the servants quarter and later requested John to be at her service.

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 Ullmann directed the film based on her own screenplay. It is yet to have a U.S. release date but is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September as a Special Presentation.
