Crime and Injustice


When her estranged rabbi father suddenly passes away, Ronit (Rachel Weisz) returns from New York to the north London Orthodox Jewish community she rejected years previously after a scandalous transgression. Ronit’s presence immediately courts further controversy when she unknowingly runs into Esti (Rachel McAdams), the wife of her strictly religious cousin Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) and the woman for whom she shared an illicit attraction in their childhood. This happy reunion soon reignites the two women’s burning, long-unrequited passions, an act of defiance that could alter the course of their lives forever. 


The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by University of Westminster Principal Lecturer in Criminology David Manlow
