Disobedience is a 2017 romantic drama film directed by Sebastián Lelio and written by Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, based on the novel of the same name by Naomi Alderman. The film was produced by Rachel Weisz, Ed Guiney and Frida Torresblanco.
"Disobedience" had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on 10 September 2017. It was released in the United States on 27 April 2018 by Bleecker Street, and is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on 30 November 2018 by Curzon Artificial Eye.
