Rachel McAdams Signs on for Forbidden Love Tale 'Disobedience' with Rachel Weisz
Variety is reporting that Rachel McAdams has signed on to co-star with Rachel Weisz in a tale of same-sex love based on the novel by Naomi Alderman.
The story follows Ronit Krushka, a 32 year-old woman who returns to her Jewish home with the knowledge that her father has died. Her return upsets the community when she rekindles past love with her best friend, who is now married to her cousin.
Weisz will play Ronit and McAdams her friend. Weisz is producing the film alongside Ed Guiney and Frida Torresblanco.
Production is eyed for early 2017. The film promises to be an important one for the representation of the LBQT community, particularly given that we only get one or two films a year that highlights this part of our society (something that perhaps needs to change).
