I wish the rest of the movie felt as fully realized as [McAdams'] performance because, like the relationship at its center, there's potential here for something beautiful that feels just out of reach.

Both Weisz and McAdams do a phenomenal job of negotiating who their characters are versus who their characters feel as though they have to be.

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.

"Disobedience" may not catapult Lelio beyond the arthouse world, but it's yet another triumph in what's shaping up to be a major career.

At first it seems like a typical push-pull between tradition and modernity, but once we dig in with the characters, it has the crackle and sympathy of real life.

Even if Disobedience is not his absolute best effort...Lelio should be commended for bringing these female-driven journeys to us.
