You may watch below the first official trailer of American Pastoral, the upcoming drama movie directed by Ewan McGregor from a script by John Romano based on the novel by Philip Roth and starring Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning, Uzo Aduba, and David Strathairn:
“Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Phillip Roth novel, AMERICAN PASTORAL follows a family whose seemingly idyllic existence is shattered by the social and political turmoil of the 1960s. Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut and stars as Seymour ‘Swede’ Levov, a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn (Jennifer Connelly), a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry (Dakota Fanning), disappears after being accused of committing a violent act, Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family. What he discovers shakes him to the core, forcing him to look beneath the surface and confront the chaos that is shaping the world around him.”
So basically a spoiled daughter is spoiling general the mood… What a very mad world, I pity the father! Anyway, great movie ahead!
Here’s the film’s poster:
A radically ordinary story.
Based on the Pulitzer prize-winning novel by Philip Roth.
The release date of the movie American Pastoral is set to October 21, 2016.
By the way if you’re wondering about the song in this trailer of American Pastoral, it’s a reprise of “Mad World” (a song by Gary Jules). And I think it’s a cover by Jasmine Thompson:
