Now in Dutch cinemas: 'American Pastoral'

December 01, 2016

On Thursday, 1 December American Pastoral will premiere in Dutch cinemas. Ewan McGregor makes his directing debut and stars in this ambitious adaptation of Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, about a "perfect" American family that is torn apart by the social and political upheavals of the 1960s.

Based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, American Pastoral transports us to a time of great upheaval and its lacerating effect on a seemingly ideal American family. With McGregor in the role of Seymour "Swede" Levov and a powerhouse cast that includes Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly, David Strathairn, and Dakota Fanning, American Pastoral conjures a cataclysmic clash of perspectives.
