Based on Philip Roth’s late novel, Indignation takes place in 1951, as Marcus Messner [Logan Lerman], 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 [Sarah Gadon], and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell [Tracy Letts], put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.
