Starring Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Phillip Roth novel, Ewan McGregor’s directorial debut follows an all American family across several decades, as their idyllic existence is shattered by social and political turmoil that will change the fabric of American culture forever.
Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut and stars as 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. Deeply affected by the war in Vietnam, his beloved daughter Merry (Dakota Fanning) disappears after being accused of committing a violent act. Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family. What he discovers shakes him to the core, forcing him to look beneath the surface and confront the chaos that is shaping the modern world around him: no American family will ever be the same.
