Disobedience Movie - The GBY

Rachel McAdams (Esti), Rachel Weisz (Ronit) and Alessandro Nivola (Dovid) were inseparable childhood friends.  Ronit has returned to their close knit Orthodox Jewish community for the funeral of her father, the rabbi.  She seems to want to be treated as the rabbi’s daughter, but on her terms.  She is distressed by the lengths her father had shunned her.   The ending is a little contrived.  I found the graphic sex to be very uncomfortable.
