Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby

Here is the trailer for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby starring Jessica Chastain as Eleanor and James McAvoy as Conor. The film tells the story of a marriage, told from two points of view. Originally there were two films shot, entitled His and Hers. Writer/director Ned Benson then edited the two films together and called it Them which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

The two characters tell the same story, but they each have a slightly different take on what actually happened. Eleanor and Conor fall in love, but when tragedy strikes Eleanor moves back in with her family. Her parents are played by William Hurt and Isabelle Huppert. She decides to take some classes at the local college where she meets a professor (Viola Davis) who helps her come to terms with her grief. Meanwhile, Conor is left adrift with only his dad, played by Game of Thornes' Ciaran Hinds and his best buddy, played by Bill Hader. The drama has excellent buzz. Take a look:
