Chris Ball and his team have acquired US rights to Liv Ullmann’s recent Toronto world premiere starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton.

Ulmann wrote Miss Julie based on the play by August Strindberg about a troubled noblewoman in late 19th century Ireland who over the course of one midsummer night attempts to seduce her father’s valet.

Synnøve Hørsdal, Oliver Dungey and Teun Hilte produced the film.

Wrekin Hill negotiated the deal with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers and has set a December theatrical release. Wild Bunch handles international sales.
