American Pastoral

The directorial debut of Ewan McGregor, AMERICAN PASTORAL is an adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel of a father desperately searching for his daughter who committed a deed of activism that went tragically awry.

McGregor stars as Seymour “Swede” Levov, who along with his wife Dawn (Jennifer Connolly) and daughter Merry (Dakota Fanning) strike a pretty portrait of Middle American respectability. But Merry finds herself increasingly drawn into protesting the escalating war in Vietnam, and as a result of misconstruing a conversation with her father Merry commits a horrific act in their small town – and then disappears.
