DISOBEDIENCE 

“Look at me. I have always been this way.”
-Rachel McAdams as Esti

From Sebastián Lelio, the director of the Academy Award-winning A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience was called“the must-see lesbian film of [2018]” and introduced us to #TheRachels. The film follows a woman, played by 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.

Through exclusive interviews with his closest friends and family, recovered archives, exquisite visuals and music, MCQUEEN is an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary who taught us to always be true to ourselves no matter what runway you are on.
