From Sebastián Lelio, the director of the Academy Award-winning A Fantastic Woman, the film follows a woman as she returns to the community that shunned her decades earlier for an attraction to a childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality. Written by Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz and based on Naomi Alderman’s book. Disobedience explores a variety of thought-provoking themes, bolstered by gripping work from leads actors. “A riveting story about love, happiness and difficult choices. Flawless performances from Weisz and McAdams.” —Rafer Guzman, Newsday
