Jessica Chastain's passion project

Hollywood A-lister Jessica Chastain is our guest on Cannes Rendezvous. The actress owes much to Cannes, as it was here that she first came to international attention in the 2011 Palme D'Or winning film "Tree of Life" by director Terrence Malick.

Since then, her star power has grown to a point where she is now able to bring a true passion project to the big screen - and to Cannes. Chastain co-produced the "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby", as well as co-starring with James McAvoy, in this tale of a married couple working through loss and grief.

Catherine Nicholson met Jessica Chastain, as well as co-star Jess Weixler and writer-director Ned Benson, to find out more about the film's ten-year journey from script to screen.
