American Pastoral‘ follows a family whose  seemingly idyllic existence is shattered by the social and political turmoil of the 1960s. Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut and stars in the project as Seymour “Swede” Levov a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn, a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry, 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 world around him.

Pulitzer Prize Winning author Philip Roth drafted the novel this film is adapted from. The cast is absolutely outstanding beginning with McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning, Uzo Aduba and David Straithairn rounding out a powerful ensemble cast that will mesh perfectly with the depth of the story being told. Check out the trailer, read the book and get ready for ‘American Pastoral‘ to hit big screens October 28, 2016.

Movie Quotes

V:
[V enters Evey's field of vision as she walks into the Shadow Gallery, directly from the prison] Hello, Evey.
Evey Hammond:
You. It was you.
V:
[quietly] Yeah.
Evey Hammond:
[gestures behind her] That wasn't real... Is Gordon - ?
V:
I'm sorry, but Mr. Deitrich's dead. I thought they'd arrest him, but when they found a Koran in his house, they had him executed.
Evey Hammond:
[whispers] Oh God...
V:
Fortunately, I got to you before they did.
Evey Hammond:
You got to me? You did this to me? You cut my hair? You tortured me? You tortured me! Why?
V:
You said you wanted to live without fear. I wish there'd been an easier way, but there wasn't.
[Evey whispers, "Oh my God...?]
V:
I know you may never forgive me... but nor will you understand how hard it was for me to do what I did. Every day I saw in myself everything you see in me now. Every day I wanted to end it, but each time you refused to give in, I knew I couldn't.
Evey Hammond:
You're *sick*! You're *evil*!
V:
*You* could've ended it, Evey, you could've given in. But you didn't. Why?
Evey Hammond:
Leave me alone! I *hate* you!
V:
That's it! See, at first I thought it was hate, too. Hate was all I knew, it built my world, it imprisoned me, taught me how to eat, how to drink, how to breathe. I thought I'd die with all my hate in my veins. But then something happened. It happened to me... just as it happened to you.
Evey Hammond:
Shut up! I *don't* want to hear your lies!
V:
Your own father said that artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.
Evey Hammond:
No.
V:
What was true in that cell is just as true now. What you felt in there has nothing to do with me.
Evey Hammond:
I can't feel *anything* anymore!
V:
Don't run from it, Evey. You've been running all your life.
Evey Hammond:
[gasps] I can't... can't breathe. Asthma... asthma! When I was little...
[V reaches out his hand, Evey grabs it, they fall to the ground together]
V:
Listen to me, Evey. This may be the most important moment of your life. Commit to it.
[Evey continues sobbing]
V:
They took your parents from you. They took your brother from you.
[Evey groans]
V:
They put you in a cell and took everything they could take except your life. And you believed that was all there was, didn't you? The only thing you had left was your life, but it wasn't, was it?
[Evey sobs, "Oh please...?]
V:
You found something else. In that cell you found something that mattered more to you than life. It was when they threatened to kill you unless you gave them what they wanted... you told them you'd rather die. You faced your death, Evey. You were calm. You were still.
[Evey continues gasping]
V:
Try to feel now what you felt then.
Evey Hammond:
[breathes heavily] Oh God... I felt...
V:
Yes?
Evey Hammond:
I'm dizzy. I need air. Please, I need to be outside.
