Disobedience #moviesungay

As we mentioned in our latest #moviesungay episode, a big struggle for us in discussing and reviewing this movie is that neither B or myself are, or ever have been, part of the Jewish faith or community. During the episode we mentioned three articles that we read that answered some of the questions we encountered and what some of the views of the queer Jewish community was towards this movie, which are linked below:

How Disobedience Fails Queer Jews (them.)

What Disobedience Gets Right — And Wrong — About Orthodox Jewish Communities (alma.)

Coming out: Naomi Alderman on leaving Orthodox Judaism behind (The Guardian)

When we watched this movie last week, we were surprised at how much of the film centers around Orthodox Jewish faith and community, as it was something we had never quite heard about from friends or social media when discussing this movie – we had always heard more about the spitting scene than anything else. It was a good surprise, however, as it gave the movie a depth we weren’t expecting (how two lesbians live on the internet without knowing or watching this movie before now is wild, we know).

B and I would like to open the floor to those of you who identify as LGBTQ+ and are part of Jewish faith and community, or have been part of it, to let us know what your thoughts on the movie are (the good, the bad, and the ugly – all opinions and perspectives are welcome here!). If you would like to share your thoughts, please feel free to do so in the comment section below, via twitter/instagram @queerfullycast, or via email queerfully[at]gmail.com.

Thank you all for another awesome #moviesungay, we’ll see you again next week for our first episode on the Canadian television show, Bomb Girls!
