2017 UK, directed by Sebastian Lelio, 114 minutes

Based on Naomi Alderman’s novel, Disobedience is another tale of forbidden love from Oscar-winning director Sebastian Leilo (A Fantastic Woman – which we screened recently). Rachel Weisz plays Ronit, a New York based photographer who receives news that her rabbi father has died. Her return to north London’s Orthodox Jewish community stirs up more than just emotions when she meets a childhood friend (Rachel McAdams) now the wife of a respected young rabbi.
