Starring: Rachel McAdams, Rachel Weisz, Alessandro Nivola, Anton Lesser, Cara Horgan
Directed by: Sebastián Lelio
What is it? An exiled woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community after the death of her father and rekindles a forbidden romance.
You’ll like it if you liked: “A Fantastic Woman” or “Gloria,” two other female-driven films by Mr. Lelio.
Critic’s take: “In ‘Disobedience,’ the emotions are reserved, the palette muted, the rooms claustrophobic, the storytelling restrained. It’s almost a surprise that Ronit (Rachel Weisz), a successful art photographer living in New York, can breathe, given how drained of oxygen this frustrating movie is.”
Australia release date: June 14
