The Accountant is the action film we’ve been waiting for…
Hey everyone! This week we discuss The Accountant, a film by Gavin O’Connor and starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons. Late Friday night, we were pleasantly surprised by The Accountant, which is not the film it is promoted to be. Rather than your typical action film, The Accountant offers much more that films like Jason Bourne were lacking.

American Pastoral: Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Philip Roth novel, AMERICAN PASTORAL follows a family whose seemingly idyllic existence is shattered by the social and political turmoil of the 1960s. Ewan McGregor (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Beginners) makes his directorial debut and stars as Seymour “Swede” Levov, a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn, a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved teenage daughter, Merry, disappears after being accused of committing a violent act, Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family. What he discovers shakes him to the core, forcing him to look beneath the surface and confront the chaos that is shaping the world around him. Synopsis from americanpastoral.movie
