Bleecker Street is excited to announce two films to be presented at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.
McQueen is a documentary on the life of the legendary fashion designer Alexander McQueen. Directed by Ian Bonhote (Alleycats, La Lucha), written by Peter Ettedgui (Listen to me Marlon) and produced by Nick Taussig and Paul Van Carter of Salon Pictures (Churchill, My Name is Lenny) and Andee Ryder of Misfits Entertainment, the film takes a bold and cinematic approach, using newly shot recreated scenes, motion and photographic archives, audio archives and interviews, exquisite visuals and music, to create an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of Alexander McQueen.
From a screenplay by Sebastián Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, and based on Naomi Alderman’s book, Disobedience follows a woman (Rachel Weisz) as she returns to the community that shunned her decades earlier for an attraction to a childhood friend (Rachel McAdams). Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
