Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby trailer

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby may look like a pretty standard romantic drama, but it has an unusual origin. The film, which is the debut of writer/director Ned Benson, originally played the Toronto Film Festival in very different form. There, it was two films, “Him” and “Her,” which together told the story of the difficult relationship between Conor (James McAvoy) and Eleanor (Jessica Chastain), and the aftermath of a particularly difficult time in their lives.

At Cannes, the project showed up as one film, sub-titled “Them”, which picks and chooses footage from both of the original halves to merge the distinct viewpoints of the original films to create a single film that is a bit more mainstream. This first Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby trailer gives a glimmer of Chastain’s performance, which won acclaim at the festivals, but hides the core trauma that threatens to destroy the relationship between the two characters.

The pair may be joined by William Hurt, who is currently in talks. More details after the jump.
