Rachel Weisz Gets Stellar Reviews In 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

Rachel Weisz dons an Isabel Marant dress during press night for her new play A Streetcar Named Desire at London’s National Cafe on Tuesday (July 28)

The 39-year-old British actress was accompanied by her husband, director Darren Aronofsky.

Rachel gives a mesmerizing performance as Blanche DuBois in the Streetcar Named Desire. The Hollywood Reporter says, “Weisz is exactly the right age for Blanche, and though she can do nothing to make her radiant features appear faded, she conveys acutely the woman’s sense of loss and desperate need for emotional nourishment.”

The Daily Telegraph adds, “Weisz rises to the challenge magnificently. Her undoubted beauty is combined here with a fluttering, birdlike nervousness and sudden moments of desperate panic that wrench the heart.”

Rachel will be performing at London’s Donmar Warehouse, through Oct. 3.

    WOW i can not imagine her as DuBois at all, but i would love to see it if i could, since the woman is a great actress imho. Glad she is getting glowing reviews.

  • Katie

    hideous dress YUCK!

  • http://www.crazycritics.com NIck

    Not surprised. she is truly a wonderful actress.

  • Jen

    is that blowed dried hair I see?… Im surprised considering she is not into that impeccable look. Good actress, but cant stand her since her last interview.

  • VICTORIA # 1

    That dress is ugly! She is a wonderful actress and I remember her from The Mummy. She certainly looked much healthier back then.

  • Kat

    Love Her dress and she looks fabulous

  • Franny

    Saw the play and she’s great. Wonderful actress and a great person, she took a picture with my daughter.

  • Clef

    She looks hot and i love her and her work.

    P.S. Who ever got offended over her last interview is an idiot.

  • lexy

    I love her! Finally this site has a Rachel with talent!

  • M

    #4 – what did she say in her last interview?

  • Yolanda

    Too bad Rachel’s play is not playing here in the states, would have loved to see it and i’m not surprised over the great reviews, she’s a great actress.

  • Tim

    @M:

    She said ““I love the way girls in London dress; it’s so different to the American ‘blow-dry and immaculate grooming’ thing.”

    Now anybody with half a brain would notice that she’s taking about style but a few morons tried to say that she was attacking america.

    Pathetic but what can you do?

  • manstem

    I think she looks great in that dress. She looks better than most of the women who are ten years younger than her.

  • wendy

    oh please she’s ugly and she’s not talented
    she won and keeps working because she’s a jew

  • :(((((((((((

    Weisz looks old and she is so snotty!

  • Eddie

    Darren looks like a total geek but i wish i was him .

  • Q

    Lover her so much, great actress and a great looking woman.

  • Q

    @Tim:

    Please, people are just too stupid sometimes and are just looking to complain about something.

  • mailey

    uh, she does not look good here. she’s not really anything special. she is weird-looking.

  • Beth

    @:(((((((((((:

    Met Rachel and Darren while shopping in NY and she was the nicest person you can ever meet. Both of them were gracious enough to sign a autograph for me. So who ever says that she’s snotty is lying plus she’s even more beautiful in person.

  • Zack Carter

    Rachel looks smoking hot. Beauty, brains and talent, a rare thing today in Hollywood.

  • Tabatha

    Got Tickets to next Saturday’s show. i can’t wait to see it, especially with the great reviews Rachel is getting.

  • Coolio

    Rachel’s dress looks stunning, It fits her like a glove. Love her whole look and i just adore her work.

  • bella

    She looks beautiful, not liking the dress though

  • Howard

    Is this coming to the US? I would love to see it. Rachel is one of my favorite actresses. Great to read the stellar reviews she’s getting for her role.

  • Gail

    Her dress looks great and chic. Rachel of course always looks great.

  • leah

    Jared, please pay attention to details. Rachel and Darren are NOT married. Hope she brings the play to NYC, I can’t afford London and would love to see her on the stage.

  • Maurice Gianesin

    WHY LONDON??? WILL THERE BE AN AMERICAN PRODUCTION??? WILL IT BE A TRAVELLING PRODUCTION??? I WOULD LOVE TO SEE RACHAEL PERFORM BLANCHE. BLANCHE IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE HEROINES. STANLEY IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE GREATEST ASS HOLE THAT EVER LIVED AS A CHARACTER IN A PLAY.
    PLEASE RACHAEL, COME TO CHICAGO, ILLINOIS AS BLANCHE AND WOW US AT THE STUDABAKER THEATRE.
