The trailer for Ned Benson’s audacious tri-movie project The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby has arrived online.
The picture(s) tell of the relationship between Connor (James McAvoy) and Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) in New York.
At the Sydney Film Festival, individual versions of the story told from each character’s perspective played under the titles Him and Her. In the U.S., and likely Australia later down the track, a joint version subtitled Them will see release first, with the Him and Her versions arriving one month later.
This might get confusing.
Nonetheless, the trailer is compelling, and highlights an impressive supporting cast that includes Viola Davis, Bill Hader, William Hurt and Isabelle Huppert.
How it connects to that Beatles song is yet to be seen.
