'Disobedience' Trailer: Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams Explore a Forbidden Love

Irene MckinneyFeb 04, 2018

Clearly, Esti's feelings haven't changed since Ronit was forced out of their community.

Disobedience follows Rachel Weisz as Ronit, the black sheep of an Orthodox Jewish family living in London.

McAdams, now married to Weisz's cousin, portrayed by Alessandro Nivola, can't help but be drawn to Weisz as the pair begin seeing each other romantically in secret. "I can't believe you're here", Esti says to Ronit.

Upon her return, Krishna is told by a community member, "We never thought we'd see you again?" She's also informed that she's been "forgiven". Weisz asks McAdams, to which she replies, "I think he felt that marriage would cure me".

As the drama intensifies, Esti is later seen shouting at her husband in frustration as they stand in the kitchen of their home. "I have always been this way!"

The movie shocked audiences at a pre-screening at the Toronto International Film Festival with a six-minute sex scene between McAdams and Weisz.

The depiction of this forbidden love affair is the English-language debut of Lelio after finding success in his previous Spanish-speaking works, including 2013's Gloria and 2017's A Fantastic Woman.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein's Game Night (2018) movie trailer stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan, and Lamorne Morris.

Last year, Lelio talked about the actresses' on-screen performances with IndieWire, saying, "They were fearless from the beginning".

"Acting is a risk - it's about trusting a director and blindly jumping off the cliff".
