Disobedience (15) 114mins

From Sebastián Lelio, writer-director of the Academy Award-winning A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience is a timely and emotionally powerful tale set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of personal desires and the demands of faith.

When her estranged rabbi father suddenly passes away, Ronit (played by Oscar-winner and co-producer Rachel Weisz) returns from New York to the north London Orthodox Jewish community that rejected her years previously after a scandalous transgression. Ronit’s presence immediately courts further controversy when she runs into Esti (Rachel McAdams), the wife of her strictly religious old friend Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and the woman for whom she shared an illicit attraction in their childhood. This happy reunion soon reignites the two women’s burning, long-unrequited passions, an act of defiance that could alter the course of their lives forever. Based on the provocative novel by bestselling author Naomi Alderman and co-written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, DISOBEDIENCE is a critically acclaimed romantic drama that explores the fraught boundaries between spiritual devotion and sexuality.

 

'Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola are at the top of their game'  The Guardian

'It reinforces the old Thomas Wolfe cliché that you can't go home again, but it does so with emotional vivacity and richly compelling context'  The Times

'An understated yet profound examination of identity and self-sacrifice, this honest depiction of repressed romance will unashamedly tug at every heart string'  Empire

'Disobedience begins with a Rabbi's sermon about free choice, and will go on to test, with the star wattage of two Rachels on top form, how far ultra-Orthodox Judaism truly allows it'  Daily Telegraph

'Weisz and McAdams are both wonderful, but Nivola quietly steals the show as a decent, pious man in an impossible predicament'  Daily Mail

'A beautiful, fraught, and emotionally nuanced drama that wrestles with hard questions about the tension between the life we’re born into and the one we choose for ourselves' Indiewire

'absorbing... this is richly satisfying and powerfully acted work'  Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

'A deeply felt drama that exerts a powerful grip'  Hollywood Reporter

'Rachel Weisz shines'  The Times
