In 1890, in Fermanagh, during the course of a midsummer night, Julie (Jessica Chastain), the daughter of the Count, an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, attempts to seduce her father's valet, Jean (Colin Farrell). The affair quickly goes to some dark places, with power and class playing a key role.[3][4]




Filming began in April 2013, and was shot at Castle Coole in County Fermanagh.[7]
