Sins of the Daughter

Well look at that: There Ewan McGregor goes.

The actors take on Philip Roth’s America Pastoral – which he headlines under his own direction (the project marks his debut as a feature-film helmer – is almost ready to be seen, since we have a trailer now.

Currently in theaters with Our Kind of Traitor, McGregor stars as Seymour Levov, a former high school star-athlete-cum-successful Jewish American businessman whose picture perfect upper middle class life shatters after his rebel-hearted daughter (Dakota Fanning) commits a deadly act of political terrorism. Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly and Emmy winner Uzo Aduba  (Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black) co-star (the former as McGregors wife).

American Pastoral is due out, in limited release, on Oct. 21.
