From Page to Screen: Disobedience

February 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm CST

The Library continues this year’s Searching the Psyche Through Cinema series – featuring films adapted from books – with the 2017 drama Disobedience (R, 114 min.). Taken from Naomi Alderman’s novel of the same name, it’s the story of a woman (Rachel Weisz) who returns to the Orthodox Jewish community in London that she fled as a child. An awkward homecoming gets more complicated when she discovers that the former classmate (Rachel McAdams) with whom she had a teenage romance has married a mutual childhood friend and her rabbi-father’s protégé (Alessandro Nivola).

Post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalytic candidate Reed Maxwell; film critic Lonita Cook; and the Library’s director of readers’ services, Kaite Stover.

Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center
