In 1951, Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.

"Indignation resonates at times with the tension of things said and unsaid, regretted and forgotten."
- Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Consequence of Sound
"James Schamus's screenplay is rich with culturally specific details that deepen these forking moral predicaments."
- Carson Lund, Slant Magazine
"This may be Schamus' directorial debut, but he's no amateur, and his experience - both in cinema and in life - comes through onscreen, supplanting whatever puerile energy a younger helmer might have absorbed from its tightly-wound 19-year-old protagonist."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"In the process, Schamus creates not only a meaningful and moving snapshot of an America on the cusp of redefining itself, but also a cinematic hybrid few of us thought possible: the literary college sex comedy."
- Oliver Jones, New York Observer
"The directorial debut of long-time screenwriter and producer James Schamus exudes a tasteful reserve, but actor Logan Lerman cuts through the seeming gentility in a performance that seethes with his character’s burgeoning arrogance and cynicism."
- Tim Grierson, Screen International
