A woman returns to the community that shunned her for her attraction to a childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
Disobedience sees Oscar-winning filmmaker for last year’s foreign features, Sebastian Lelio, continuing to explore much of the same themes touched upon in A Fantastic Woman; grieving the loss of a loved one is a human right, self-discovery, freedom of choice, and how alienating society can be to those with differing beliefs and lifestyles. At the end of that review, I wrote that the message can essentially be tidily summed up as one pleading with people to simply treat everyone with human decency, something that isn’t hard at all to carry out in day-to-day life.
