August Strindberg’s “Miss Julie” is being adapted for the big screen by writer/director Liv Ullmann (“Sofie”), and explores issues of power through social class, gender, and family and will surely make for a great on-screen drama.
The story takes place in 1874 and concerns a young woman attempting to escape an existence cramped by social mores, who strikes up a relationship with a senior servant.
It is thought that Chastain will play the role of the young woman, and Farrell will play the servant.
I think this is incredible casting as both have tremendous talent (though Farrell’s is frequently wasted), and the story seems relevant to today’s social issues.
