When I was a teenager I read Goodbye, Columbus. It was my initiation into the world of Philip Roth. Later I would dive into Portnoy’s Complaint, seeing it on my mother’s nightstand. As a Jewish woman in America, he spoke to our culture exploring the Jewish experience in his novels. It’s been years since I’ve picked up one of his novels, and when I saw that Indignation, written some eight years ago, was being made into a film I was excited to put it on my “must see list” for this summer (especially after the great buzz from the Sundance screenings).
Based on Philip Roth’s late novel, Indignation takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.
