Based on Philip Roth's late novel, Indignation takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner, 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, and his clashes with the college's imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell, put his and his family's best laid plans to the ultimate test.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Indignation proves it's possible to put together an engaging Philip Roth adaptation -- and offers a compelling calling card for debuting writer-director James Schamus.
Mature yet riveting drama about college, family, religion.
