In Ewan McGregor’s Directorial debut ‘American Pastoral’, a man named Swede (McGregor) marries a beauty Queen named Dawn (Jennifer Connelly) and his life seems perfect. That is until his daughter Merry (Fanning) becomes a Vietnam war activist and carries out a terrorist attack on a post office.
Directing is tough enough, but starring in a film and directing just adds another level of difficulty. Luckily McGregor was up to the task and in this interview from the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival Dakota Fanning, Valorie Curry, and Ewan McGregor discusses how up to the task Ewan was.
American Pastoral releases on October 21, 2016.
