Video: Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell play with fire in 'Miss Julie'

The following clip is NSFW, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.

If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication.

Miss Julie, which also stars Samantha Morton, is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
