AMERICAN PASTORAL

Mon 27 Nov 7:30pm

Set in the late 1960s, this Patty Hearst-like story of the dark side of the counter-culture chronicles the destruction of an American family - headed by a stern patriarch (Ewan McGregor) - when their radicalised daughter (Dakota Fanning) disappears after taking part in a lethal bomb attack on the local post office. McGregor makes his directorial debut with this adaptation of Philip Roth's 1997 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

“A haunting, engrossing, often eerily timely adaptation.” - Los Angeles Times

“McGregor…conveys the character's decency, and he draws solid performances from the cast.” - Stephen Carty, Radio Times

“Hard-hitting and beautiful to look at.” - NOW
