Watch The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby
- 1 hr 29 min
This film, subtitled "Them," is a combination of two separate films written and directed by Ned Benson, "Him" and "Her." The two movies cover the same time period and events, but from the different perspectives of young New York married couple Connor Ludlow (James McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain). "Him" follows the life of Connor as he works daily at his restaurant, while "Her" follows Eleanor as she returns to college for a graduate degree. Connor and Eleanor, once happily married, now struggle to understand each other. The story uses flashbacks showing happier times in contrast to current scenes depicting how each character is trying to cope with a new individual identity now that their love has faded, now that they are no longer "them." When a personal tragedy strikes, Connor and Eleanor work to traverse the rocky terrain of their marriage and re-establish the love they have lost.
