"I'm afraid something terrible will happen…" Summit & Roadside have released an official trailer for James Schamus' Indignation, an adaptation of the Philip Roth late novel, starring Logan Lerman as a boy from New Jersey attending a small, conservative college in Ohio. What the synopsis fails to leave out is that he's atheist, clashing with the head of the school, but still intelligent in his own way. Besides Lerman, the full cast features Sarah Gadon, Tracy Letts, Linda Emond, Danny Burstein and Ben Rosenfield. This premiered at Sundance to mostly positive reviews, a strong debut for Schamus. It's not exactly the best film of the year, but it does have a wonderful score by Jay Wadley, and great performances from the entire cast.
Here's the first official trailer for James Schamus' Indignation, originally from Huffington Post:
Based on Philip Roth's late novel, 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. Indignation is both written and directed by newcomer James Schamus, who is making his directorial debut after running Focus Features for years. The film premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Summit Entertainment & Roadside Attractions will release Indignation on July 29th this summer.
Connection to Ice Storm and Sarah Gadon is enough for me to see this. I just hope the guy won't turn into Percy Jackson. That would really be an awkward development. Sorry, just can't shake off that idea ...
