This weeks "Movie for Readers" is Indignation, based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Philip Roth. The novel is set in 1951 and involves the main character's Korean War experience, but it is difficult to tell (especially from this trailer) just how closely the film follows the novel's plot. The book focuses on the main character's sophomore year in college and it appears that the movie does the same.
Hey, it's Philip Roth, and for fans of Philip Roth that's all we need to know. It's a movie for adults...and those are getting harder and harder to find.
Indignation is scheduled for a July 29, 2016 release.
