DescriptionBased on Naomi Alderman's book, the film stars Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola. Screenplay by Sebastián Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
The film follows a woman as she returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her decades earlier for an attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
The NYTimes writes: Emotions are reserved, the palette muted and the storytelling restrained in Disobedience, Sebastián Lelio's frustrating movie about female desire in a patriarchal religious community.
Stay after for a discussion led by the Makor Center's Rabbi Frank Tamburello.
