The 2015 Berlinale Film Festival has announced it’s official programming schedule and as we previously reported Rachel’s upcoming film “Every Thing Will Be Fine” is selected for the film festival (out of competition). The first screening will be held on February 10 at the Berlinale Palast. Two additional screenings will be held on the 11th and 13th. The first production stills of the movie are also released including one with Rachel and co-star James Franco which can be found in our gallery. The official plot can be found below. For more information about the tickets be sure to head over to the official Berlinale website.
Every Thing Will Be Fine (Out Of Competition)
Germany / Canada / France / Sweden / Norway 2015, 118 min
Director: Wim Wenders
Cast: James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams, Marie-Josée Croze, Robert Naylor, Patrick Bauchau, Peter Stormare
A winter’s evening. A country road. It is snowing, visibility is poor. Out of nowhere, a sledge glides down a hill. Brakes are slammed on, the car comes to a halt. Silence. Tomas, a novelist, is not to blame for this tragic accident, neither is little Christopher who could have kept a closer eye on his brother, nor Kate, the mother of the two, who could have called the children in earlier …
Afterwards, it is as if Tomas has fallen into a deep pit. The relationship with his girlfriend Sara collapses under this burden. He seeks refuge in his writing and tries to establish a family of his own with Ann and her daughter Mina. The film follows Tomas over twelve years in his attempt to give his life meaning again, just as much as it follows Kate and Christopher until the latter is 17 years old and finally decides to face the man he met only once before, on that fateful evening …
Every Thing Will Be Fine carefully and precisely tells a story of guilt and the search for forgiveness, and the fact that it is not time that is a great healer but the courage to face up to things and to forgive. Especially oneself.
It was previously reported that Rachel was cast as Kate but judging on the plot is seems more likely that Rachel will portray Sara.

Paramount France released the first French (teaser) trailer for “The Little Prince” (‘Le Petit Prince’) earlier today. Rachel is part of the English voice cast but we decided to share this version with you as well because it gives a good impression of the film. We have added the trailer in our media archive, you can watch it directly below or by heading over to our media site. We think we have spotted Rachel’s character around the 00:04 mark.
French Synopsis (via Google Translator): This is the story of a story. This is the story of a little girl, fearless and curious, who lives in a world of adults. This is the story of an aviator, eccentric and mischievous, who never really grew up. This is the story of the Little Prince that will bring them together in an extraordinary adventure.
Be sure to ‘Like’ the official French Facebook page of the movie and we hope an English trailer will be released soon as well.
