Toronto 2016: 'American Pastoral' Review

American Pastoral is a book I read on my honeymoon, which some might consider an odd choice. (Keep in mind, I also read The Road.) Now, Philip Roth's fine novel has been turned into, well, a just-OK movie. The directorial debut of Ewan McGregor is simplistic in some ways but emotional enough to suggest the power of Roth's words. My review is up at Screen International.
