Based on Philip Roth’s late novel, this film takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working class Jewish boy from Newark, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative Ohio college, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. Once there, his growing infatuation with beautiful classmate Olivia (Sarah Gadon) and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean (Tracy Letts) put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test. This elegant and literate drama marks the directorial debut of veteran writer-producer James Schamus (The Ice Storm, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Writer/Director: James Schamus. (US 2016) 110 min.
