Academy-Award winner Rachel Weisz (Denial) and Rachel McAdams (Spotlight) star in this spellbinding drama about 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 in this film that critics call "romantic and gripping" (Parade).

Intimate, mature relationship between two complex women.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Disobedience is an intelligent, nuanced drama based on Naomi Alderman's novel about how two women's lives and relationship are affected by the insular Jewish community in which they were raised. There are several sex scenes: Women have sex with men, with moaning and thrusting (as well as partial nudity), and there's also a passionate, rather explicit sex scene between the two central women (there's more partial nudity, plus kissing, licking, touching, and more). A minor but important character collapses and dies, and there's yelling/arguing; a man also angrily grabs his wife during an argument. Language is infrequent but includes at least one use each of "f--k" and "s--t." A main character smokes cigarettes, a character drinks a glass of whiskey, and there's social drinking and a brief discussion of drugs. The movie's themes are quite mature, and it's very much meant for adults. Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Alessandro Nivola co-star.
