    James McAvoy mmm <3 and I love Jessica Chastain too!

  2. Lauren says:

    This movie is actually going to be three with ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him’, ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her’, and then the final one one ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them’. It is pretty damn cool as each movie shares some of the same scenes/ characters and then fills in what wasn’t covered in the first two by having it all come together for ‘Them’.

    • Steph says:

      That sounds cool! Can’t wait to see it.

    • neverland says:

      That’s really interesting! Just googled it and it seems Them is the mainstream one, with Him and Her being shown to less availability. I’ll have to try and see all three.

  3. PunkyMomma says:

    True Blood. Eric and Jason. Realized it was a dream when the Viking “bottomed”. 👀

  4. Jesse4 says:

    Sigh. I love him.

    ETA: She is so pretty and looks like a genuinely nice person.

  5. Sunny says:

    It is really good. Saw it last fall at TIFF where it was workshopped.

    Two caveats though:
    1) The version I saw was the original two movie format and I have read a few reviews saying the condensed final version is not as good as the separate films
    2) It is a difficult, non-linear movie. One of those really honest films about a relationships struggle after horrific events and their aftermath so it is super depressing.

    James McAvoy is terrific in this movie. I liked the ‘Him’ version more than the ‘Her’ version. One final thing, Bill Harder and Viola Davis turn in excellent supporting work. Harder is the real surprise for me after seeing this movie.

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    Wait, which version is this one? There’s 3 right?

    • ctkat1 says:

      This is the “Them” version. As I understand it, Harvey Weinstein pushed for the “Them” version and will be releasing that version widely in theaters, and the “Him” and “Her” versions will be released on a smaller scale. I’m actually really interested in seeing all three films, because I think it’s a really interesting way to tell a film story. So hopefully all three versions will be released near me!

    Can I just say how DISAPPOINTED I am in the Supreme Court ruling today? Women are deemed second class citizens whose medical options can be determined by her employer. Lest women start getting these crazy ideas about equality, someone has to keep them in check, right?

    That doesn’t even go into the fact that the SCOTUS made a decision about a medication on false premises (it doesn’t prevent implantation, it prevents ovulation).

    • Tiffany27 says:

      Agreed name twin. It’s quite disappointing.

    • Neelyo says:

      My name’s not Tiffany but I’m horrified. This will have consequences beyond women. Corporations will soon have more rights than humans.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree. It starts with women, but it will put employer before employee in a number of ways. It is just the start of a very scary journey.

    • malina says:

      Awful :(

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      The whole point of a corporation is to separate the company from the person. A company does not have religious beliefs. This is an outrageous decision, allowing people the protections of incorporation, but treating them like individuals when it’s convenient. Stupid, dangerous precedent.

    • From North of Boston says:

      This decision was so disappointing. Too much management of people’s personal lives by corporations…especially women’s personal lives/bodies. A health insurance policy provides insurance…covers medical expenses – the employer who contracts for a standard insurance policy for its employees isn’t normally involved in nit-picking decisions about which services/medications are offered – those are part of a standard offering. Except, it seems, when it comes to questions of managing mental health services or women’s rights to manage care of their own bodies…then everyone wants to grab control of the lives of perfect strangers.

      It baffles me :

      a) Why health insurance has to be linked to one’s employer. Yes, it’s easy to handle to the tax treatment through payroll deductions, and it’s great if employers want to offer it as a benefit, but I don’t understand why EMPLOYER-HEALTH INSURANCE has gotten shackled together in the US healthcare system

      b) Why it’s anyone’s business besides a woman and her doctors what treatment/medications are appropriate, she has access to.

      (sorry, that was a lot more articulate in my head)

      I wish I could say that I was shocked, but nothing this court does is shocking. Its the same court that rolled back the Voting Rights Act. They said that it was no longer needed. In an age where people of color are removed from voting rolls in whole swaths just for being POC, the Voting Rights Act is still needed. When people are told they aren’t eligible to vote, even when they are, the Voting Rights Act is still needed.

      Looking at the pictures of the owners of each of these businesses, I’m struck by the fact that they are flanked by a lot of children. A LOT. My rights should trump religious and business rules as well as their owners beliefs. I have my own set of values that I follow, just as they do.

    • magpie says:

      Awful ruling: Corporation rights>women’s rights. This is why feminism is important and why young people need to be taught that it still is relevant today.

  8. T.C. says:

    Like how McAvoy still flashing his wedding ring even with Jessica draped all over him to play up for the cameras. Classy guy.

    • kri says:

      You know @ T.C. she was draping herself all over my man-piece, Tom Hardy just that way during the Cannes Fest. when thei movie came out….hissss

      • ichsi says:

        She does that with all her co-stars. And the effect is genius imho. There are pics of them where they look like they’re the most beautiful silverscreen stars.

    • Katherine says:

      They’re affectionate with each other after working closely on this film. There is nothing wrong with that. These posts read like so many women afraid of their partner’s female friends.

      As someone mentioned it may just be part of the act anyway. Life is full of real issues and problems. Why create them at every turn?

  9. Kiddo says:

    Apropos of nothing, does anyone else scroll through the crazy days and nights blind reveals and look at the answers first to see if you even want to be bothered finding out what the questions were? I’ll see Kim K, for example, and then I’ll think, who cares? Next.

  10. ashley says:

    Saw the trailer on friday,can’t wait!!!

  11. Marianne says:

    i think it will be very interesting considering there will be 3 different versions released.

  12. Megs283 says:

    The movie that Minnie Driver was in – Return to Zero – made a huge splash in the baby loss community. One of my favorite parts (okay, weird word to use) is the credits, when they list the names of babies who passed away. What a beautiful tribute in a world where many people are afraid to say your dead child’s name.

    While I wasn’t a fan of a subplot, I thought many of the depictions of grief were true to life – the rage, the hollow-eyed stare, enduring oblivious questions from those who don’t know your baby didn’t make it. And the title – it’s exactly how I feel. I’m back at zero.

    I hope if people are curious that they’ll check out the movie. I believe it will run on a Lifetime again. Kudos to Minnie Driver for participating in a movie about such a difficult topic – and thank you for posting it in the links.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I haven’t heard of the movie, but many of my friends have unfortunately dealth with such a loss. Your post makes me think I should watch the film to better understand what they have been through.

      Hugs to you.

    • jenny solo says:

      There is an excellent book about losing a baby that i read a few years ago. It actually brought me to tears. “An exact replica of a figment of my imagination” by Elizabeth McCracken. it’s a compelling read even if you’ve never lost a child.

  13. Chris says:

    So how does the reference to The Beatles song tie in?

  14. peachcobblerby says:

    They look beautiful together, very coupley.

  15. Em' says:

    I’ve seen the “Them”‘s one. It was so good I can’t wait for the two other movies.

  16. Oh Really says:

    Yes to him. Always. I’d hit it until the house burned down…absolutely love his sweet face.

  17. Amy Tennant says:

    Is this the same Greg Kelly who was accused of rape and acquitted, and the press outed his alleged victim and treated her horribly?

  18. Altariel says:

    These two look way too friggin’ beautiful together! So Not Fair!!!… gaaaaaak!!!!!

    Movie(s) look interesting, if not a little sappy melodramatic….but who cares; James McAvoy in a romantic role is all I need to hear (and see) !!

  19. Josefa says:

    Seems a little sappy for my taste, but I’ll watch it (them?) just because of the cast. Adore them both. James is dreamy and Jessica is as talented as she is beautiful (and she is SO DAMN PRETTY!).

  20. emm h. says:

    I’m so excited for this, only James McAvoy could make me want to pay to see three different versions of a movie… he’s my absolute favorite actor, and i love Chastain too.
