The question of whose disobedience, and what kind of disobedience it is, are at the heart of this absorbing and moving love story from Chilean director Sebastián Lelio based on the novel by Naomi Alderman. The drama takes place in the Orthodox Jewish community of north London. Weisz is Ronit, a young photographer evidently living a fashionable and bohemian lifestyle in New York. Out of the blue, she receives some bad news from back home that her father, a much-respected rabbi, has died. Ronit’s return resurrects her past relationships with Dovid (Alessandro Nivola), her father’s favourite pupil, who is now a much admired young rabbi himself. The other is with Esti, beautifully played by Rachel McAdams, who was Ronit’s only ally in youthful rebelliousness back in the day. This is a richly satisfying and powerfully acted work.
