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.
