It already grossed close to $16 million in the US. The movie holds a Certified Fresh Rating at Rotten Tomatoes with a 91% score.
The UK press released two new interviews with Rachel so far which are both added in our press archive. You can find some excerpts below:
On the German dialect: “Even just learning the dialect and the flavour of the German sound informs this new kind of person in me. Sometimes the further from what you imagine yourself to be the better, because then you find you’re probably closer to those people than you think.”
On her upcoming movie slate: “I’m not really a creature of habit. I like trying everything out.”
On making films: “Making a film, it’s just the right combination of people and place and time, and whatever is going on in the world around you. It’s so elusive. I think you start with a desire and a yearning to tell a certain story, and you kind of have to let the rest go. Maybe that’s very naïve, but so far that’s what I have tried to do.”
We also wanted to share this wonderful quote from director Anton Corbijn on casting Rachel in the movie (Via Hot Press):
“Rachel’s a naturally charming woman. I just thought that it would be interesting to have her in a more demanding and serious role, and that kind of charm will stay. That’s how she gets people to be on her side. She plays this young girl who gets in over her head really, but she means really well, she’s idealistic and kind of naïve in her handling of it all.”
