Inspired by the 2006 novel of the same name by Naomi Alderman, "Disobedience" is the new feature film directed by Sebastián Lelio. The movie premiered in September 2017 at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Actresses Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz play the lead roles: Ronit Krushka and Esti Kuperman.

The story takes place in an orthodox Jewish community. When Ronit's father died, she decides to go back to her hometown where she met her best friend, Esti, married to a rabbi. Very quickly, the feelings that had existed between the two women resurface.

"Disobedience" has the particularity of containing a six-minute lesbian sex scene. The relationship between Ronit and Esti is both moving and sensual.

The film also speaks of disobedience, hence its name.

“It’s about disobedience,” as Weisz said during TIFF to the Los Angeles Times. “It’s about obedience. It’s about how far we rebel from the place that we grew up in. Choosing your own path through that and not just doing what you’ve been conditioned to do by your family.”

To warn you right away. In my first article on "Disobedience", I mentioned the possibility of a disappointing end for us. While the love between the two women is undoubtedly throughout the film, it seems that they don't end together. Nevertheless, I am curious to discover this movie and I hope you are too.

"Disobedience" is one of the best lesbian films of 2018. It will be released on April 27 in the United States. You can have more information about the release dates for your country here:
