Synopsis

Seymour “Swede” Levov was a legendary high school athlete in his youth and is now a successful businessman married to Dawn, a former beauty queen, in 1960s America. Living a seemingly idyllic life in suburbia, their foundations are rocked when their teenage daughter Meredith, increasingly politically active as the Vietnam War continues, disappears after commiting a deadly act of terrorism. As he desperately tries to find her, Seymour is forced to confront the chaos shaping American society around him and why Meredith appears to have so taken against the values he has attempted to impose. An adaptation of the seminal Philip Roth novel and the directorial debut of actor Ewan McGregor.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
