Two Sides to Every Story: the Eleanor Rigby Trailer

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, a new film starring  James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain, tells the story of a married couple whose marriage falls apart after a tragedy. The film will be out on September 26, but then six weeks later, two new versions—one titled The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him, the other The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her, will be out, so viewers can see the two sides of the Them story.

In making these versions, director Ned Benson is drawing on the Rashomon Effect, where all the narratives are suspect. There is bound to be a lot of Oscar buzz for this film, and it's an intriguing approach to telling a story.

h/t to Heather Waters for the post!

Well, I think McAvoy's hot (have we done a blog post yet on hot short men?), so I'll put this on my list of movies to look for. Thanks!

We have not done a post on hot short men, Darlene! I think this looks really good, although I'm guessing it's lacking a romantic HEA.
