American Pastoral

by Ewan McGregor Gala Premieres

On the surface it seems that Seymour "Swede" Levov and his wife, Dawn, are the perfect American couple. The celebrated former athlete, who runs his father’s business, and the former beauty queen live an orderly life together with their daughter, Merry, in 1960s New Jersey. When protests against the Vietnam War spread across the country and Merry, to the horror of her parents, joins a group of radicals who fight American policy, however, the family idyll is shattered. As the young rebels become embroiled in a deadly bomb attack on a family friend, Merry disappears, breaking off all contact with her parents. Swede would do anything to find his daughter – but his world spirals increasingly out of control. Ewan McGregor’s directorial debut is the long-awaited adaptation of the eponymous novel by Philip Roth.
