American Pastoral

Ewan McGregor directs and stars in this adapatation of the Philip Roth novel of the same name. McGregor stars as a hardworking father and husband whose middle-class life falls apart when his daughter gets involved in radial politics, circa 1968. Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning costar. The acting is solid, but Roth remains notoriously difficult to translate onto screen (see also: Goodbye, Columbus; Portnoy's Complaint; The Human Stain; The Humbling; Elegy and Indignation—none of which really work). 108 minutes R.
