Disobedience Rachel Weisz returns to her oppressive orthodox Jewish community only to find love with a one Rachel McAdams. Beach Rats This sexy, dreamy indie drama glides through the life of an aimless teenager trying to find love and community on the cruising beaches of Brooklyn. Cher won the Oscar for it.
