YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT -

AMER­I­CAN PAS­TORAL Drama. A seem­ingly per­fect fam­ily cas­cade into ruin when Merry (Dakota Fan­ning) – the trou­bled teenage daugh­ter of Sey­mour Swede Levov (Ewan McGre­gor), a suc­cess­ful busi­ness­man, and Dawn (Jennifer Con­nelly), a for­mer beauty queen – dis­ap­pears in a cloud of con­tro­versy. This event dra­mat­i­cally changes the course of the cou­ple’s lives, as Dawn spi­rals into de­spair and Swede for­sakes ev­ery­thing and ded­i­cates his life to try­ing to find his beloved daugh­ter, Merry.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-win­ning novel of the same name, McGre­gor’s di­rec­to­rial de­but ex­poses the fam­ily’s tragic, tur­bu­lent story as well as the fleet­ing na­ture of the Amer­i­can dream. – BUHLE-BETHU QATYANA 2016. 104 MIN. 16LS
