To see something like the this film will affect you in some way. “American Pastoral” is about a father who will never give up his daughter who went missing after a bombing who killed a dear friend of the family. You will rethink your life and wonder why wasn’t my parents this dedicated like this father was to his daughter and refused to give up hope!?
“American Pastoral” is about a former high school football star, married a beauty queen from Jersey. She’s Christian and he’s Jewish and yet they married and had a gorgeous little girl. You can tell from her childhood she will grow up to be trouble, and not the good kind. When she’s 16 she is speaking up about the Vietnamese war and how many people are being killed daily over there… And before you know it, she’s a prime suspect in a bombing in her small hometown and now she’s on the run. Her father spent years trying to find her, FBI is looking for her too. One day he does find her, but.. is it the same sweet little girl he raised? And what about his wife, how well is she taking all of this? Missing daughter and also a suspect in several bombings around USA. Well, like most, she snaps.
“American Pastoral” is a drama that will strike you in the heart and make you angry all at once, frustrating teenager who keeps throwing tantrums because she won’t get her way. Over all, the film is fantastic and Ewan McGregor playing the father does a phenomenal acting, he will wow you. He never disappoints me. We see Dakota Fanning as the daughter and I’m glad to see her back in the films recently and she is just as good portraying this troubled girl.
