★★★★ ”Brilliantly directed by the Chilean-Argentine Sebastián Lelio, Disobedience is very different from typical British realist drama. Lelio gives even the most humdrum scenes shot in drab, grey north-London houses and streets an unlikely lyricism.” – The Independent
“Beautifully acted by Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola as the three points of a melancholy romantic triangle, this is a deeply felt drama that exerts a powerful grip.” – The Hollywood Reporter
