Miss Julie

Miss Julie

Drama, Romance

Over the course of a midsummer night in Fermanagh in 1890, an unsettled daughter of the Anglo-Irish aristocracy encourages her father's valet to seduce her.

The critical consensus

Polished, but lacking in scandalous tragedy.

**(*)(*)(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 31/08/2015

Uninspired adaptation of Strindberg's play, with Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell.

**(*)(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 31/08/2015

All talents are ill-served by the unambitious handling of the material.

**(*)(*)(*)Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies, 02/09/2015

Jessica Chastain plays a bored, pampered aristocrat whose dangerous flirtation with Colin Farrell’s self-hating valet takes on the feel of a sub and dom role play.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 03/09/2015

In maintaining the period setting, Ullmann hasn’t found a way to make the themes feel particularly relevant and, despite the committed performances, the intended naturalism of the play feels too theatrical on film.
