We have added the first portraits session Rachel did during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival in our gallery. Rachel was photographed by various outlets, also alongside her costars Rachel Weisz, Alessandro Nivola and director Sebastián Lelio. Rachel also posed for People and Entertainment Weekly’s with an adorable rescue pop of FindingThemHomes.com.
Earlier today, Rachel stopped by Deadline’s Grey Goose Cocktails & Conversation panel for “Disobedience” alongside Rachel Weisz, Alessandro Nivola and director Sebastián Lelio. The panel was livestream, but sadly there were technical problems with the audio. We hope the full panel (with audio!) will be released soon. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
In case you missed it, you are still able to (re)watch the livestream. The video can be found after the jump.
After the world premiere screening of “Disobedience“, the first reviews are slowly getting released. We will round-up the reviews in this post as they are getting released. We will especially highlight the reviews focusing on Rachel’s performance. It’s too early to tell right now what the general consensus is, but the performances and in particular Rachel’s performance has received praise after the initial reactions. With The Guardian critic calling Rachel’s work “excellent” and Roger Ebert’s critic calling it “some of [her] best work”. Be sure to check back later, because we expect more reviews getting released throughout the day/week. The movie currently holds a 100% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes (with 10 reviews) and a 81 score at Meta Critics.
“McAdams does some of the best work of her career as Esti, the true instigator of this relationship (she is the only who hasn’t refused contact with Ronit) and the one who won’t give up on it. McAdams has been an underrated performer for years, and it’s nice to see her get a challenging role here. She’s easily the best thing about the movie. I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as her performance because, like the relationship at its center, there’s potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.”

Ahead of tonight’s world premiere of “Disobedience” at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, director Sebastián Lelio sat down with the Spanish news outlet Latercera.com while he was in Los Angeles. This is the first time Lelio talks in-depth about the movie, so we (loosely!) translated the excerpts on the movie. Be sure to check back later for our coverage of TIFF and don’t forget to follow our twitter @rachelmonline and instagram @rachelmonline for the latest updates.
On what drew him to the movie: “Somehow, when I read ‘Disobedience’ I saw connections with my first feature film, La sagrada familia (2005), which also featured a female character which faced a circumspect world. Disobedience is a universe of characters who are very confused, trying to do their best in a world of moral conventions and rather rigid concepts (in this case, Jewish orthodoxy). In that sense, I thought it could be my territory.”
On how he got involved: “I think I owe this to my feature film ‘Gloria’ (2013). Rachel Weisz own the rights for an adaptation of ‘Disobedience’. They were looking for a director to take over and at that moment [she] saw ‘Gloria’. She made the emotional connections between the story of Disobedience and my film [Gloria].”
It’s only one day until the world premiere of “Disobedience” during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and the movie seems to be one of the most anticipated movies of the festival. If you follow our twitter feed @rachelmonline you might have noticed the movie is included in lots of anticipations lists by various media outlets, including from trade sources. We decided to make a round-up of all the articles in this posts in anticipation of tomorrow’s premiere. According to both Variety, Deadline, and THR the movie is one of the most in demand titles at the buyers market. The movie already found distributors internationally, including in the UK, but is still without a distributor in the US. Let’s hope it will get acquired during TIFF. Be sure to check back tomorrow for our coverage of the world premiere.
