We’ve got our hands on two new pictures of Indignation, the upcoming drama movie starring Logan Lerman and Sarah Gadon:
“America, 1951. The country’s mood is characterised by McCarthy era hysteria and young men are being drafted into military service in Korea. Marcus Metzner is particularly relieved to receive a place at college in Ohio since his enrolment at a university exempts him from the draft. It also means that he will be able to escape his authoritarian father, who runs a kosher butcher’s shop and is beset by paranoid fears. But college life is by no means easy. Competition, class differences, amorous adventures and Marcus’ refusal as an avowed atheist to at least attend the synagogue at this Christian college see him summoned before the dean time and again.”
What happened to Logan Lerman’s hair? Did he turn into a sheep for the film?
The film is written and directed by James Schamus based on a novel by Philip Roth.
