Logan Lerman’s ‘Indignation’ Gets July Release

Roadside Attractions has set July 29 as the opening for coming-of-age drama “Indignation,” starring Logan Lerman.

The film will open in Los Angeles and New York, then expand during August. Lionsgate, which owns part of Roadside, paid $2.5 million at Sundance in January for the domestic rights to “Indignation,” the directorial debut of former Focus Features co-founder and CEO James Schamus.

The film is based on the Philip Roth novel about a brilliant young Jewish man who escapes his sheltered family life in New Jersey and his job in his father’s butcher shop to attend a small conservative Ohio college in 1951 on a scholarship — exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. He becomes infatuated with his beautiful classmate (played by Sarah Gadon) and clashes with the college’s dean, portrayed by Tracy Letts.

Linda Emond, Danny Burstein and Ben Rosenfield also star. Producers are Anthony Bregman, Schamus and Rodrigo Teixeira.

Schamus has writing credits on “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “The Ice Storm,” and produced “Brokeback Mountain.”

“This may be Schamus’ directorial debut, but he’s no amateur, and his experience — both in cinema and in life — comes through onscreen,” Variety‘s chief international film critic Peter Debruge wrote in his review of “Indignation.”

Roadside generated strong box office performances last summer with a pair of specialty films — “Mr. Holmes,” which saw $17.7 million domestically, and “Love and Mercy” with $12.6 million.

News about the release date was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
