Indignation – “Don’t be an A-hole!”

A Jewish college student (Logan Lerman) falls for a young woman (Sarah Gadon) while clashing with his dean (Tracy Letts) in 1951 Ohio.


“Storm” – Indignant [in-dig-nuh nt]  adjective
feeling, characterized by, or expressing strong displeasure at something considered unjust, offensive or insulting.

This pretty much sums up the lead character. So set in his believes he is, that he doesn’t leave room to entertaining anyone elses pecerption of the world and is completely closed off to the outrageous notion that he may, infact, be wrong. This makes for interesting debates and numerous humerous moments (when viewed in the context of our current politically correct climate and the perception of what is socially acceptable to say).


While I quite enjoyed the movie I initially found the end to be a little disjointed but on second thought realised that it all ties into the central theme: every action you take influences your not only your future but also alters the course that those around you are on. 7.9/10

Let us know what you thought of the movie!
