Director: Sebastian Lelio
Starring: Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, Alessandro Nivola
An emotionally powerful tale set at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, of personal desires and the demands of faith. When her estranged rabbi father suddenly passes away, Ronit (Rachel Weisz) returns from New York to the north London Orthodox Jewish community that rejected her years previously after a scandalous transgression. Ronit’s presence immediately courts further controversy when she runs into Esti (Rachel McAdams), the wife of her strictly religious cousin David (Alessandro Nivola) and the woman for whom she shared an illicit attraction in their childhood.
Directed by Sebastián Lelio, writer-director of the Oscar-winning A Fantastic Woman.
