There’s more than meets the eye in the new INDIGNATION movie, now playing in select cities, and if you’ve read Philip Roth’s novel of the same name, you know exactly what I mean. I won’t spoil the story, but it’s haunting.
INDIGNATION takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.
I think this will be a movie that stays with you long after the final credits roll.
