James Schamus‘ Indignation (2016) movie trailer stars Sarah Gadon, Logan Lerman, Ben Rosenfield, Tracy Letts, and Margo Kazaryan. Indignation‘s plot synopsis, based on the novel by Philip Roth, “Set in 1951, the story follows Marcus Messner, the idealistic son of a humble kosher butcher from Newark, N.J. Marcus leaves for Ohio to study at a small, conservative college, where he finds himself at odds with the administration, grapples with anti-Semitism and sexual repression and pines after a troubled girl.”
I have been a fan of Philip Roth and his writing for years. Unlike the corrupting distortions that occur when a Nicholas Spark book is translated to the big screen, Roth’s work is translated with a more measured, delicate hand. It looks as though the same care has gone into Indignation. It was a dubious choice to keep Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon)’s mental instability off-screen during the trailer. Instead, the trailer focuses on the story’s main protagonist Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman) and the different facets of him and his college life, including Hutton. When the second trailer is released for this film, the viewer will probably be given a greater looks at all the other important characters in the story.
This drama film also stars Linda Emond, Pico Alexander, Noah Robbins, Melanie Blake Roth, Danny Burstein, Doris McCarthy, Joanne Baron, Susan Varon, Philip Ettinger, and Richard Topol.
