The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them

After a flashy showing at Sundance, filmmaker Ned Benson took his films The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and cut them into a single, (slightly) more conventional narrative. In whatever incarnation, Rigby relates the story of a couple (Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy) who break up in the wake of their baby son's death. She tries to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, moves in with her parents and goes back to school. He buries himself in his work at a struggling bar/restaurant. There's some serious ACTING (in all capitals) going on here. Supporting cast includes Isabelle Huppert, William Hurt, Ciarán Hinds and Bill Hader. But the whole affair seems a little too high-minded and "constructed" to really get to the heart of the matter. 122 minutes Unrated.
