The late ’80s and early ’90s brought us several coming-of-age films set in elite prep schools, such as “Dead Poets Society,” “School Ties,” and “Scent Of A Woman.” They don’t make movies like that anymore, save for once in a blue moon.
Well, that blue moon is here. July 29th sees the opening of “Indignation,” which is set in 1951 at a small private college and is based on the Philip Roth novel.
The film has a mostly positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though one critic is quoted as saying the movie is great looking but a “museum piece.”
Like I said, once in a blue moon. — CC
