Synopsis:
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 cousin 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.
'Disobedience' is a timely and emotionally powerful tale set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of personal desires and the demands of faith.

A little Gem - Disobedience review by CR

This is a very small but completely believable and touching film about love and religion clashing. This is the second of Rachel Weisz's produced films about the Jewish community/teaching and its obvious that she is a s good as a producer as she is actress. I'd recommend this highly!!

Nothing much to write home about - Disobedience review by BE

Spoiler Alert
07/10/2019

An okay movie around the scenario of two women in love with each other. I can appreciate the movie was well acted but didn't find it particularly aluring. Not being of the same faith, I also had difficulty in relating to the Jewish customs and rituals.
