Genre: Drama, Romance. Dir: Sebastián Lelio. Country: UK / USA.
Ronit (Rachel Weisz) lives a bohemian life as a photographer in New York, and returns to her childhood home in the Orthodox Jewish community of London when her father, a greatly respected rabbi, dies. There she encounters two old friends: Dovid (Alessandro Nivola), now an esteemed young rabbi himself, and his wife Esti (Rachel McAdams), who was Ronit’s best friend and partner in teenage rebellion. As the two women reconnect and long-buried intimacy begins to resurface between them, a passion reignites that may have been the catalyst for Ronit leaving all those years ago.
