Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
Okay, this might be confusing at this point, but here's the deal: "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" is coming in three flavors this year. The originally conceived, two part movie "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her” will both open in limited release on October 10th. The condensed version, encompassing both narratives and simply titled “The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby” will arrive first on September 12th. Whichever version you come across first should be on your must-see list for the fall.

Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
It’s a unique and ambitious endeavor, one that took almost a decade to get off the ground and one that began before Jessica Chastain became a star. First-time director Ned Benson had wanted to make a relationship movie from the perspectives of both a male and female – though in fact it began as one screenplay and when Chastain said it didn’t really represent her viewpoint, the filmmaker hit a eureka moment and expanded on his story. The rest is history. And also, what was originally two films (which premiered last year at TIFF) — "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Him” and 'The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Her” — was eventually cut into a third film entitled “The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them” (which screen at Cannes this past spring, though when it hits theaters, the “them” will likely get dropped from the title).

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
This fall, Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy will come together and break apart in "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby," but you'll have three ways to see the movie. You can watch at as it was first shown at TIFF last year, in two parts, "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Hers," or in the new single movie cut that played at Cannes, "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them." Either way, a new trailer is here no matter how you take it in.

Miss Julie/Salome
Jessica Chastain will be seen at least three more times onscreen in 2014 in: J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year" which sounds like it could be an Oscar contender, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” which come to think of it might be the same and Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.” But could we see her twice more?

Oscars/Awards/Cannes 2014, ThePlaylist
Though there’s still a couple of days and a few high-profile premieres to come, things are starting to wind down here in Cannes. So while that means a chance to catch up on reviews, and on stuff we missed earlier in the festival, it’s also a opportunity to have a breath and take stock of what’s come over the last week or so. And, we say with a semi-heavy heart, to start to work out which of the big Croisette premieres might stay the distance all the way through to the upcoming awards season.

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
As you know by now, the origin story of this film is unlikely to be repeated. At TIFF last year, Ned Benson premiered his conceptual feature film debut as a three-hour emotional journey of a break-up split in two parts: ‘Him’ and ‘Her’ (read our review here). Harvey Weinstein acquired the rights, and with no release date in sight, fear from fans (myself included) was that Harvey Scissorhands was going to force Benson into cutting the film down. Seemingly, that’s exactly what happened because a two-hour version, subtitled ‘Them,' premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes (read our review).

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
The existence of "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" is one of the strangest things in recent American cinema. A first time writer-director, Ned Benson, managed to attract a killer cast at his first time at bat. The film, a New York-set relationship drama, was conceived, shot and screened at TIFF as a two-part, three-hour epic, subtitled "Him" and "Her," telling the same story from two different points of view (read our review). The Weinstein Company bought the rights.

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby
When the Cannes Film Festival lineup was revealed last month, there was a curious entry in the Un Certain Regard category: Ned Benson's "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby." It was strange because, last September, the director hit the Toronto International Film Festival with a work-in-progress showing of the project as it was originally conceived—as two films: "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" (read our review). The Cannes news made us wonder if Harvey Weinstein, who is signed up to distribute the film, had weighed in and kiboshed those original plans. The answer is much more complex, but the good news is, you'll be able to see all three cuts.
