‘Disobedience‘ is the English-language film debut for director Sebastian Lelio. It features Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz deeply in love, but unable to fully explore it because of their strict religion. It’s based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Naomi Alderman.
The film premiered last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it received mostly positive reviews. It currently has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. After its premiere at the festival, it was picked up for release in the United States, which is why we’re now seeing promotion for the film.
It’s expected to be released April 27, 2018, and it could surprise a few people.
“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.”
