Indignation is a poignant story about a young man, Marcus Mercer (played by Logan Lerman from Perks of Being a Wallflower), embarking on adulthood. Set in the 1950s during the Korean War, Marcus avoids the draft by attending college in Ohio. Though raised Jewish, Marcus holds fast to atheists ideologies, putting him in an awkward position at the “square” Lutheran institution.  The film’s somber undertone is brightened by the coy and a bit crazy love interest, Olivia Hutton, along with surprisingly comical exchanges between Marcus and the school’s Dean Caudwell.

Indignation will show at the following times and locations during the Seattle International Film Festival:

Saturday, May 21, 6:30 PM             AMC Pacific Place 11

Sunday, May 22, 3:00 PM                Lincoln Square Cinemas
