“Disobedience” Gets April 2018 Release (US)

Bleecker Street announced their upcoming schedule for their 2018 slate and “Disobedience” is among them. The movie will be released on April 27, 2018 in the United States. It was announced before that the movie will be released on May 4, 2018 in the UK.

Bleecker Street has announced release dates for their first five titles for 2018. Following two acquisitions out of the Toronto International Film Festival, Sebastián Lelio’s Disobedience and Dominic Cooke’s On Chesil Beach, Bleecker Street has also dated Mark Pellington’s new drama Nostalgia (following up the 2017 Shirley MacLaine starrer, The Last Word) and has partnered with Shivani Rawat’s ShivHans Pictures on Brad Anderson’s political thriller Beirut (formerly titled High Wire Act). The company will also release writer/director Elizabeth Chomko’s debut feature, What They Had, in 2018.

DISOBEDIENCE – APRIL 27
From a screenplay by Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the film follows a woman as she returns from New York after the death of her estranged rabbi father to the Orthodox Jewish community in North London where she grew up. Once back at home, she stirs up controversy when she shows an interest in a childhood friend. The film stars Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola.

Bleecker Street Acquires “Disobedience”

Screen Daily is reporting that Bleecker Street has acquired the rights for “Disobedience” in the US and looks like they will be aiming for a release in 2018. The movie premiered earlier this month during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival with rave reviews for Rachel’s performance. The movie was already picked up internationally and will be released on May 4, 2018 in the UK.

Bleecker Street has acquired US rights to Sebastian Lelio’s Disobedience, the drama starring Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola that premiered in Toronto.

Lelio’s English-language debut centres on a Jewish community in north London as a New York-based photographer returns for her father’s funeral and rekindles a friendship with another woman.

Lelio wrote the screenplay with Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Frida Torresblanco produced for Braven Films, Ed Guiney for Element Pictures, and Rachel Weisz for LC6 Productions. Film4 developed the film and co-financed with the film’s internationals sales agent FilmNation.

“Sebastian has captured, with real authenticity, the universality of love and faith, and the strength and sacrifice it takes to fight for what you believe in,” Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen said. “We’re excited to bring Rachel Weisz’s, Rachel McAdams’ and Alessandro Nivola’s powerful and honest performances to audiences across the country next year.”

“Disobedience” 2017 TIFF Reviews Round-Up

After the world premiere screening of “Disobedience“, the first reviews are slowly getting released. We will round-up the reviews in this post as they are getting released. We will especially highlight the reviews focusing on Rachel’s performance. It’s too early to tell right now what the general consensus is, but the performances and in particular Rachel’s performance has received praise after the initial reactions. With The Guardian critic calling Rachel’s work “excellent” and Roger Ebert’s critic calling it “some of [her] best work”. Be sure to check back later, because we expect more reviews getting released throughout the day/week. The movie currently holds a 100% fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes (with 10 reviews) and a 81 score at Meta Critics.

“McAdams does some of the best work of her career as Esti, the true instigator of this relationship (she is the only who hasn’t refused contact with Ronit) and the one who won’t give up on it. McAdams has been an underrated performer for years, and it’s nice to see her get a challenging role here. She’s easily the best thing about the movie. I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as her performance because, like the relationship at its center, there’s potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.”
