USA, 2016, 110 minutes
Based on the Philip Roth novel. America 1951, the country’s mood is characterized by McCarthy era hysteria while young men are being drafted into military service in Korea. Marcus Messner receives a place at Winesburg College in Ohio, exempting him from the draft and allowing him to escape his authoritarian father, who runs a kosher butcher’s shop. Competition, class differences, amorous adventures, and Marcus’ atheism see him summoned before the dean time and again. Conversations with the dean turn into verbal battles during which the young man confidently espouses his moral and political ideals. But can he also live by them?
