Movie Diary 2/20/2019

Disobedience (Sebastián Lelio, 2017). Catching up with one from last year, another solid film from the director of Gloria and A Fantastic Woman. The central trio of performances, from Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams, and Alessandro Nivola, are strong enough to justify what otherwise seems a fairly standard dramatic situation, and Lelio finds enough evocative ways of visualizing key moments – like the almost offhand discovery that one of the principals has spent a night sleeping on a couch – to keep the film compelling. Really curious about why McAdams hasn’t had the kind of career that Amy Adams or Kristen Stewart has made over the last few years.
