Miss Julie (2014)
Critic Consensus: Miss Julie definitely gives Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell room to shine, but neglects to leave them a solid enough setting to augment their efforts.

Critic Reviews for Miss Julie
Liv Ullmann's adaptation of August Strindberg's play might best be billed as a midsummer night's sex tragedy. It is on the overwrought side.
All talents are ill-served by the unambitious handling of the material.
The film remains mostly boxed up in the kitchen, and the upstairs-downstairs tension, in both senses, dissipates.
It occasionally looks too theatrical and the scene with Julie's canary might remind you of Oscar Wilde's lines about Little Nell. Yet there is passion.
The film is visually bland, with only a couple of bookending outdoor sequences around a handful of interior sets.
Audience Reviews for Miss Julie
The three actors, especially Chastain and Farrell, are splendid in this talky and bleak adaptation whose theatrical origins are quite transparent, but which unfortunately starts to resemble more and more a melodrama as the (overlong) story advances and finally falls flat in the end.
