What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Todd McCarthy 'American Pastoral' lacks complexity of Roth's novel.
Paul Boekkooi Dié Roth-roman geen guns gedoen as fliek.
Tomatometer American Pastoral finds debuting director Ewan McGregor’s reach exceeding its grasp with a well-intentioned Philip Roth adaptation that retains the form, but little of the function, of its source material.
