First trailer for Ewan McGregor's American Pastoral arrives online

Lionsgate have recently released their first trailer and one sheet for Ewan McGregor's (The Impossible) directorial debut American Pastoral.

Adapted from Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize winning novel by John Romano (The Lincoln Lawyer), American Pastoral finds McGregor in the starring role alongside Dakota Fanning (The Runaways) and Jennifer Connelly (Blood Diamond). They are a seemingly picturebox family, suddenly torn apart by an act of violence involving their radicalised daughter (Fanning).

Set against the backdrop of post-war America, American Pastoral has McGregor's successful businessman and athlete Seymour 'Swede' Levov unravelling as the nation's social upheaval winds a destructive path into his own family.

With Uzo Aduba (Orange Is The New Black), Molly Parker (Deadwood), Rupert Evans (Hellboy) and Valorie Curry (The Following) also in the cast, American Pastoral arrives in the UK on 4 November.
