New film which features Anton Lesser in what looks to be a small role. There is a very brief shot of him near the beginning of the trailer.

From Hollywoodoutbreak.com: "A film to place in your radar within the coming weeks is Disobedience, the latest feature from Chilean director Sebastian Lelio that is headlined by Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams. Lelio’s previous work A Fantastic Woman garnered praise and Disobedience has also received its share of support from critics. T...he story centers on Ronit, a New Yorker who returns to London after her father’s (Anton Lesser) passing. Shunned by the Orthodox Jewish community, Ronit’s return is met with reservation. Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola star as Esti and Dovid, her childhood friends who are now married. This triangular relationship may have powered their youth, but adulthood is an entirely different matter."
