Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams on playing lovers, forbidden desire and that sex scene
The stars of Disobedience talk to DIVA's Roxy Bourdillon

Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams are making out. In an anonymous hotel room, they kiss each other hungrily, their bodies straining with lust. McAdams tips her head back and, in a move that seems practised, like this isn’t the first time they’ve done this, Weisz gently dribbles her saliva into McAdams’ expectant mouth. It’s a shockingly sensual act. McAdams swallows and parts her lips again, ready for more.
A few days after watching Disobedience, my head is still filled with flashbacks from the acclaimed new film about forbidden sapphic passion in the Orthodox Jewish community. I can’t quite believe it but I’m on the phone to Rachel Weisz. Seizing the moment, I ask what she thought when she first read that spittle stage direction. There’s a pause. A pause so long I worry I’ve overstepped the mark and already blown this A-list interview. Then finally, I get my answer. “Erm... pretty hot, I think.” I exhale with relief as she continues, her tone considered and charming. “I’m not saying it’s this universal gesture that would turn everyone on, but I thought it was original, something I’ve not seen onscreen before. Very, very intimate.”
