Afterschool director Antonio Campos follows up his unnervingly hypnotic film Simon Killer with Christine. Campo’s third feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it was praised as a brutal, intimate character study with a tremendous performance from Rebecca Hall (The Gift) as Christine Chubbuck, a reporter who committed suicide on the air in 1974. The independent drama, which co-stars Michael C. Hall (Cold in July) and Tracy Letts (Indignation), was sold to The Orchard, and they’re releasing it into theaters next month.

Below, watch the Christine trailer.

Indignation

At 24, Logan Lerman‘s already built up a damn impressive career. He’s done the franchise thing with Percy Jackson, checked off the “YA adaptation” box with Perks of Being a Wallflower, and worked with filmmakers like David Ayer (Fury), Darren Aronofsky (Noah), and James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma). Now he’s back this summer in Indignation, the directing debut of The Ice Storm and Hulk screenwriter James Schamus.

Based on the novel by Philip Roth, the drama stars Lerman as a working class Jewish boy attending a Christian college in Ohio. Between his religious convictions and his romance with fellow student Olivia (Sarah Gadon), who’s got some troubles of her own, he fits in like a square peg in a round hole. Our own Ethan Anderton caught Indignation at Sundance, and he loved it so much he’s even quoted in the first Indignation trailer, which you can watch below.  Read More »

Indignation Review

After finding fame as the titular hero in the Percy Jackson fantasy franchise, Logan Lerman has started to carve an impressive acting career over the past few years with praiseworthy performances in films such as The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Fury. But his latest leading turn in Indignation, an adaptation of Philip Roth‘s novel of the same name, shows the outstanding talent that Lerman has when given the right role. Indignation has the best performance of Logan Lerman’s career, and it helps that the film surrounding this stellar work is brilliant as well. Keep reading for my full Indignation review. Read More »
