About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is one helluva compelling film that presents us with several of the very best performances of the year.
Fresh: The most striking moment is a quietly fierce monologue from the boy's mother (veteran character actress Linda Emond) in which she talks him down from marrying the fragile young woman.
Rotten: Despite its pluses, "Indignation" often plays like a heavy handed after-school special. It's not so much indignant as it is tedious.
Fresh: With its mature perspective on distant formative years, the film feels true to the spirit of Roth; little from the deep wellsprings of the great novelist's fiction is lost in translation.
This movie touched me.
A hidden jewel
This movie is an excellent portrayal of the unexpected twists and turns and life changing events that fate can, and inevitably will, place in our paths as we tumble so innocently through our days. I will undoubtably watch this movie again then, perhaps, again.
