Two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty) stars in Ned Benson’s directorial debut The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (the collective title of three films). This fall, she’s also starring in Christopher Nolan’s very highly anticipated Interstellar and the thriller A Most Violent Year. It’s been a busy, exciting year for Chastain.
But who she really wants to work with is Austrian director Michael Haneke (The White Ribbon, Amour, Caché) and his French muse, the actress Isabelle Huppert who played the sexually repressed piano teacher in Haneke’s controversial The Piano Teacher. Chastain said, if she had the opportunity to work with Haneke: “I would move to the country (France). I would study the language for months. That’s something that I hope to challenge myself with.”
