Miss Julie (2014)

Director: Liv Ullmann. Cast: Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton. 129 min. Rated PG-13. Norway/UK/Canada/USA/France/Ireland. Drama.

The Swedish play was written in 1888, the first film adaptation (1951) won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes, the second remake (1999) was directed by Mike Figgis, and this third remake directed by the great Liv Ullman, Ingmar Bergman's famous muse. And actually, the subject matter is quite significant, believably showing how sexual relations can entirely reverse the power roles before and after sex is committed. But then, I'm proven wrong that every Jessica Chastain movie is good, because I was slitting my wrists from boredom by the end of the movie. Two hours-plus was way too long.
