The film gets the exterior structures of religion, and even gets the idea of belief, but fails to grasp its content...Of course, such considerations are easy to overlook when a decade's worth of repressed sexuality is bubbling over.
Lelio's style seems careful and restrained in "Disobedience" - the colors are drab and muted, the characters speak enigmatically. But there's a bold flamboyance to his style even within the desaturated color palette and claustrophobic environment.

With Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams starring as its furtive, inflamed lovers, Disobedience has pedigree to spare. But the result feels wonky and lopsided, as if several crucial scenes were left behind on the cutting-room floor.
