AT THE MOVIES

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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).

Any­way, here’s the lead­ing ladies’ tits…
