The trailer for ‘Indignation’ was recently released. Starring Logan Lerman and Sarah Gadon, you can read the synopsis of the film below accompanied by the trailer.
An intense drama set in 1951, when young Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman; Fury, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), brilliant son of a Jewish butcher from Newark, NJ, travels to a small, conservative college in Ohio as most young men are being drafted to serve in the Korean War. Once there, the shy, non-religious Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beguiling, troubled classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon; The Amazing Spider-Man 2; A Royal Night Out), and his clashes with the school’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts; The Big Short), have increasingly explosive consequences for Marcus and his close-knit family. The film bristles with themes of ’50s morality, sexual repression and anti-Semitism.
