Ewan McGregor (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Beginners) 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, a former beauty queen.

But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry, 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.”

This film looks fantastic. I read the book years ago and this trailer really brings it to life. There are aspects of the book just hinted at in this trailer. The strength of the narrative is that the predictable does not happen. Characters rise and fall throughout this book. Another strength of the narrative in the book is that the reader sees how characters became who and what they were later in life. I hope some of that is present in the film.

American Pastoral also stars Molly Parker, Rupert Evans, Valorie Curry, David Strathairn, Peter Riegert, Mark Hildreth, Emily Peachey, Hannah Nordberg, Ocean James, David Whalen, and Julia Silverman.
