Irish Hollywood superstar Colin Farrell is set to show off the best side of Fermanagh next week as his latest movie hits the big screen.

The Dublin actor will star alongside Jessica Chastain and 18th century stately residence Castle Coole in the movie Miss Julie, released on September 4.

Filmed solely at National Trust locations in Fermanagh, the movie is based on August Strindberg’s play of the same name.

Key landscape scenes were also filmed at Florence Court, with its dramatic backdrops of mountains and forests.

Set in the 1880s, Miss Julie depicts a fierce battle for power and dominance between the troubled daughter of a baron and her father’s ambitious valet.
