Film Synopsis
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Philip Roth novel, American Pastoral follows an all American family across several decades, as their idyllic existence is shattered by social and political turmoil that will change the fabric of American culture forever.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT I was very moved by the script and I was completely taken by the ‘Swede’ and the study of father daughter relationships. He’s a man who believes very much in living his life the right way. I’ve always wanted to direct, but I didn’t want to just direct for the sake of it. I wanted to have a story that I was compelled to tell.
