The first trailer is here for the film adaptation of Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, American Pastoral. This will be the directorial debut of Scottish actor Ewan McGregor who stars as the father, partnering with Jennifer Connelly, of a troubled teen played by Dakota Fanning. The trailer gets the trendy treatment of a song over most of its images, saving the dialogue until the end. This now slightly irritating trend lends a bit a of mystery here. Clearly a book worth reading and a film primed for award season. American Pastoral is in theaters October 28th in the US and November 4th in the UK.
