[Perspectives] Breaking the rules

Disobedience, the first novel by Naomi Alderman, author of The Power, which won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2017, has been made into a film directed by Sebastián Lelio, and co-written by Lelio and Rebecca Lenkiewicz. It is set in the orthodox Jewish community in north London, but its themes have a more universal resonance. Is community stronger than love? Are rules more important than individual expression? Who is allowed to express their true sexuality and what happens to those who do?
