Sometimes it takes an outsider to offer a lucid perspective on a world. Think of Ang Lee’s take on Jane Austen’s England in ‘Sense and Sensibility’, or Wim Wenders’ vision of America in ‘Paris, Texas’. In ‘Disobedience’, (now exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema) director Sebastián Lelio adapts Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel and presents a fascinating portrait of life amongst the Orthodox Jewish community in the North London suburb of Hendon. Curzon met with Sebastián to discuss the experience of shooting ‘Disobedience’ on location.
Showing as part of the Curzon12 collection ‘Streets of London’, it’s available to watch for free, exclusively on Curzon Home Cinema.
