Indignation

Based on Philip Roth's 2008 novel, " A triumph of elegant writing, exquisite acting, and a vibrant spiritual treatment of righteous indignation." - Spirituality & Practice

"The superb, searing drama 'Indignation' revisits a time and place that operated under such a strict moral code that today it is utterly alien, although it was merely the United States in the early ’50s.

"Set against the backdrop of the Korean War, whose bloody consequences are depicted at the outset, James Schamus’s film of Philip Roth’s novel features a superb, textured performance by Logan Lerman as Marcus, a high-achieving Jewish boy from Newark, NJ. He goes off to college in Ohio where he has a spat with his roommates while striking up a complicated romance with a blond gentile (Sarah Gadon).

"In a dazzling, prosecutorial central scene, the dean (Tracy Letts) inexplicably presses Marcus on the importance of fitting in at the school, and Marcus replies hotly that he has done nothing wrong — though he doesn’t see why, as an atheist, he should be forced to attend chapel. Soon a social problem starts to seem like moral sloppiness, at least to the dean.

"In its portrait of American youth as a high-stakes affair instead of the extended play-date it is today, 'Indignation' is haunting and important." - New York Post
