When her father, the rabbi for an Orthodox Jewish community in London, dies, cosmopolitan New York photographer Ronit (the amazing Rachel Weisz) returns to the closed world from which she fled so many years ago. Once there, she quickly encounters her first love: the mild-mannered Esti (the equally fine Rachel McAdams), who never left the Orthodox fold and who is now married to Ronit’s father’s protégé Dovid (Alessandro Nivola). For a community that forbids any physical contact between a man and a woman who aren’t married, it goes without saying that lesbian relationships are beyond the pale… Director and co-writer Sebastián Lelio, the Chilean filmmaker fresh from his Foreign-Film Oscar win for A Fantastic Woman and working for the first time in English, continues his quest to illuminate relationships that push against narrow-minded convention, and the result here is every bit as successful as in his previous work.

‘A gorgeously acted, written and directed spellbinder… Disobedience—like all meaningful movies about the mysteries of love—never tips its hand to indicate where it’s going… Weisz gives a blazing performance that nails every subversive impulse in a character who only thinks she has it together. McAdams, for her part, is quietly devastating as a wife trying to measure what would be lost if she broke free to follow her heart…’—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
