Critics reviews

The last moments of the film give us reason to believe that Esti and Ronit will be able to maintain a relationship, if an unconventional one in which Esti remains living with Dovid as they raise a child together. And although this reunion might be implausibly romantic, Disobedience, in focusing on the characters’ shared humanity, makes an important point about the need to accommodate difference.
