For Weisz, the film felt like a departure from previous projects.
“[The characters] are so complicated in the fact that you see them in a relationship with each other, talking to each other, endlessly about everything … it’s also about female friendship, something I really like because I’ve got really close female friends and I chew their ears off,” Weisz said. “I’ve never been in a film where I’ve gotten to talk to a woman this much, let alone also make love to her.”
McAdams, too, said she appreciated the complexity of the women they portray.
“Rachel drew me [to the film],” she said. “It was two very strong female characters who are very, very different and yet came together as lovers and friends.”
The film opens in theaters Friday.
