"The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" movie quotes tell a romantic love story about a young couple as seen by her perspective, his perspective and the perspective of those around them. Ned Benson wrote and directed the three films with the first, "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them," having opened in theaters on September 12, 2014.

In "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby," Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain) and Connor Ludlow (James McAvoy) meet and almost immediately fall head over heels in love with one another. They soon marry with Connor working in a restaurant and Eleanor returning to college.

But when tragedy strikes the couple, their blissful honeymoon stage quickly ends. Eleanor, looking to leave the unpleasantness of the present, flees, leaving Connor wondering where she went and what to do. But as Eleanor seeks solace in family and friends (including William Hurt and Viola Davis), she learns the tough lesson that love, while amazing initially, isn't always paradise and requires a good deal of persistence to make work.

"The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" opens alongside other films that were all the rave at recent film festivals including "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," "The Drop," "The Identical," "Frontera," "The Longest Week," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Frank," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight."
