“Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams brilliantly enact this tale of forbidden same-sex attraction in London’s Orthodox Jewish community. No one who follows the groundbreaking trail that the movie blazes is going to shut up about it.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“The performances, like the film, are rich, layered things of tremendous feeling and complexity. The characters, like the film, are imperfect but well worthy of cherishing.” – Allison Shoemaker, Consequence of Sound
“Ultimately, this is a gently humane portrait of an enduring problem facing men and women in all manner of fundamentalist communities: the notion that choice has anything to do with who we desire.” – Sara Stewart, New York Post
“Like director’s Sebastián Lelio’s recent movie A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience is a nuanced study of grief, with Ronit’s mourning taking just as much a focus as her and Esti’s slow-burning romance.” – Erika W. Smith, Bust Magazine
“The possibilities for these characters are more varied than it initially seems, and “Disobedience” thoughtfully considers them all.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
