The Captivating Drama Arrives on Digital HD on October 25 and Blu-rayTM & DVD on November 8
SANTA MONICA, CA (September 13, 2016) – Based on Philip Roth’s best-selling novel, Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Sarah Gadon (upcoming The 9th Life of Louis Drax) star in the sizzling period drama Indignation, arriving on Digital HD on October 25 and on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital), and On Demand November 8 from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the film is directed and written for the screen by Oscar®-nominated producer James Schamus (Best Picture, Brokeback Mountain, 2005) in his directorial debut. Hailed by The New York Times as “easily the best film made of a Roth novel,” Indignation is a compelling coming-of-age story about forbidden obsessions leading to tragic consequences, set in a vividly evoked mid-century America. The film also stars Tracy Letts (The Big Short, TV’s “Homeland”) and Ben Rosenfield (6 Years, HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”).
Passions ignite and cultures clash in this provocative coming-of-age story based on the best-selling novel by Philip Roth. After Marcus (Logan Lerman), a brilliant working-class Jewish student from New Jersey, arrives at a small, conservative college in Ohio, he becomes infatuated with a beautiful classmate, Olivia (Sarah Gadon). Their mutual attraction sparks a torrid encounter with consequences Marcus never imagined, putting his family’s best-laid plans—and his own beliefs—to the ultimate test.
The Blu-ray and DVD releases both include two all-new featurettes: “Perceptions: Bringing Philip Roth to the Screen” features interviews with the cast on the film’s themes and their resonance today, and “Timeless: Connecting the Past to the Present” takes viewers behind the scenes of the film. Indignation will be available on Blu-ray and DVD for $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
