Despite an increasingly diverse filmography that's made her one of the most coveted actresses in Hollywood, we've yet to see Jessica Chastain in a romantic lead role. Her most famous depictions, including the one as a hardscrabble CIA agent in Zero Dark Thirty, lacked any kind of romantic element, as did other Chastain favorites like The Help and The Tree of Life.
That's all about to change. For her latest effort, Chastain didn't just make one romance, she made three. Well, director Ned Benson made three, but he tapped Chastain to star in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him , and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them. The film trio tells the story of a married couple (played by Chastain and James McAvoy) whose once blissful relationship slowly disintegrates. The three films look at the story from McAvoy's perspective, from Chastain's perspective, and finally a combination of the two. It's heady, ambitious stuff and based on the stunning first trailer, it looks like Benson and his cast have pulled off something that might end up being kind of revolutionary. See what we mean below.
