Winter Film Series - Indignation
Event Location: Freedom Public Library

The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sundays at 4:00 pm. Popcorn is served! Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film.

Description of Indignation: Philip Roth, the brilliant novelist and chronicler of post-World War II America, wrote this small novel in 2008. It recalls a time of repressive conformity, racial segregation, blatant anti-Semitism, overpowering fear of Communism, and inhibiting sexual rules. Set in 1951 and clearly autobiographical, it’s the story of Marcus Messner, son of a Newark, N.J. butcher, who in attempting to avoid the draft and service in the Korean War, is accepted by and attends Winesburg College, a small Ohio school. Marcus has all the difficulties you might expect of a brilliant, self-proclaimed atheist, a rebel before his time, who has to undergo an uncomfortable interrogation about his philosophies, including his objection to attending compulsory chapel, and yet must keep a lid on his emotions including erotic feelings which are repressed during a complicated romance that goes wrong. This film portrays the grim atmosphere of a time long gone and is a great adaptation of a Roth novel.
