In 2014, Jessica Chastain played in Ned Benso’s drama “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby”. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is the collective title of three films written and directed by Ned Benson. The film stars Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy.
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is broken into three films, Him, Her, and Them.
All three films follow the same time period, but are told from the differing perspectives of Conor Ludlow (James McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain), a young married couple living in New York. Him looks at their relationship from Conor’s angle, while Her follows Eleanor’s.
Conor spends his days working in his restaurant while his wife Eleanor returns to college for further education. During the course of their daily lives, the couple encounters a life changing event that threatens the stability of their marriage.
