“Rachel Weisz stars as a black sheep drawn back to her London Orthodox Jewish home, rekindling sparks with a childhood friend played by Rachel McAdams in Sebastián Lelio’s (Oscar winner A FANTASTIC WOMAN) English-language debut, a transfixing consideration of love, faith, sexuality and personal freedom within the insular confines of a London Orthodox Jewish community. Beautifully acted by Weisz, McAdams and Alessandro Nivola as the three points of a melancholy romantic triangle, this is a deeply felt drama that exerts a powerful grip. Adapted by Lelio and playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz from the novel by Naomi Alderman, the film is a nuanced exploration of a taboo lesbian relationship within a microcosm of religious repression. The tone, like the muted light and color palette of Danny Cohen’s cinematography, is one of careful restraint, which makes the roiling emotions beneath the characters’ surfaces all the more compelling” —Hollywood Reporter.
