Drama, Period and Historical
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.
The conflict in Vietnam provides the backdrop for one of the best and most visceral war movies of all-time.
