Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams Discuss the 'Forbidden Love Story' in 'Disobedience'

Stars Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, and Alessandro Nivola and director Sebastian Lelio stopped by the Variety Studio Presented by AT&T at the Toronto International Film Festival to talk about their new film, “Disobedience.”

Weisz explained that, before she found “Disobedience,” she was on the hunt for a movie with at least two great female roles and “read a lot of lesbian literature in my pursuit of that.”

“This one just struck as something that was very interesting because it’s contemporary, it’s set in a community in North London that exists, but people really don’t know much about,” she said. “And it’s about obedience and disobedience and freedom and set in a society where there are many things that are forbidden, including homosexuality. It’s like, not on. So it was a good context for, kind of a forbidden love story.”
