Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut with AMERICAN PASTORAL, which follows Seymour “Swede” Levov, a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn (Jennifer Connelly), a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry (Dakota Fanning), disappears after being accused of committing a violent act, Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family.

I'm always rather curious to see why an actor is willing to step behind the camera to direct a film. PASTORAL looks like a solid family drama with some bite, but I really liked how the trailer was devoid of all dialogue with the music carrying the gist of the story across. I'm not sure it's going to blow people away, but it's got my attention.

AMERICAN PASTORAL will open in theaters on October 28, 2016.

WTF?

I literally finished reading this book about an hour ago, and was curious if there was a movie version out there somewhere. I hadn't gotten around to researching yet, and then I saw this headline. Bonkers.

I know you weren't too hard on this trailer.. but it just seems like this site gets more pretentious by the day.. every review seems so dour.. every article ends with a pessimistic tone.. I thought it was a fantastic trailer.. of course your not sure if a movie is going to blow anyone away.. you've only seen 2 minutes of it!! I've been coming to this site since since 2000.. I think it was after I saw the Mission to Mars trailer during the super bowl.. and if you checked my ip address you would

I think it was after I saw the Mission to Mars trailer during the super bowl.. and if you checked my ip address you would have more hits from me than any other user..and I've never commented on anything.. ever. I just feel like the site is loosing its Identity, which is Joblo, movie talk for normal people who love films not some smug pretentious film student, who shits on everything just to make himself look better... sorry for the rant and maybe this isn't the best article to post this on because you really weren't that harsh.. but I'm losing faith.. I love Joblo.. do more drugs.. get more blow jobs or (joblojobs) just be happy!!!

I think I also started coming in '04. I have some theories of my own about why the change in tone. Regardless, too many have been noticing the change in tone.
