The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, September 12

With a title like The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, there's no way it wouldn't be on our radar. The film was actually split into two parts -- The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her -- in which each piece is told from the perspective of the male and female. Them is the combination of the two for your complete viewing pleasure. The always-glowing Jessica Chastain and devilishly handsome James McAvoy star as two lovers who fall in love, grow up, and fall out of love. It's a raw love story with more elements of reality than fanciful narrative. Him and Her will be released separately in select art house theaters on October 10.
