AT THE MOVIES
WHEN premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, everyone was talking about the film’s sex scene between stars Rachael Weisz and Rachel McAdams.
Part of the reason Weisz felt so comfortable with acting in her first lesbian sex scene was because of how important the explicit moment is to the film’s story.
The scene is essential in showing Rachel McAdam’s character Esti Kuperman being freed from the repression she feels as a member of a Jewish Orthodox community.
“I think we both felt very vulnerable and there was a real sweetness,” Weisz said of the scene.
“I don’t know if male actors ask this question but I know women normally think, ‘Is this sex scene necessary?’ And in this case, it’s essential.
“The whole story of repression leads up to this moment. For Esti, the release of this big orgasm she had was also a spiritual moment. It’s about freedom.”
Disobedience stars Weisz as New York photographer Ronit Krushka, who travels back to her Orthodox hometown in London after her rabbi father passes away.
Her short time home reawakens a former romance with Esti, who is married to Ronit’s father’s protégé, Dovid (Alessandro Nivola).
