And as if all this were not enough, Swede later became the successful manager of the glove factory his father had founded, which allowed him to live with his wife in a beautiful house in the New Jersey countryside. Well-mannered, always bright, smiling and positive, conservative but with a liberal edge, what bad could ever happen to him?

In this cinematic transformation the words are placed in the utterances by Nathan Zuckerman, sort of an Everyman as he states in the opening of the film — 'Let's remember the energy. America had won the war. The depression was over. Sacrifice was over. The upsurge of life was contagious.
We celebrated a moment of collective inebriation that we would never know again. But at 62, I found myself drawn to it as if in the crowd of half-remembered faces I'd be closer to the mystery at the heart of things, a magic trick that turned time past into time present'.
Ethan McGregor directs. We all reflect on a time that somehow, though placed in the 's resistance against the Vietnam War, is terrifyingly familiar with the mood of the nation at present, again at resistance rallies — and that is the reason it works so well. He had everything an American idol can dream of - a the tall muscular young man and high school star athlete but he married a Catholic beauty queen named Dawn Jennifer Connelly against his father's Peter Riegert advice. Swede later became the successful manager of the glove factory his father had founded, which allowed him to live with his wife in a beautiful house in the New Jersey countryside.
The couple's stuttering daughter Merry Hannah Nordberg then Dakota Fanning is their pride and joy until she steps into the s and becomes an antiwar activist, responsible for bombing a little station, killing the owner in what is a senseless and horrifying change in life direction. Merry leaves home and the rest of the film is a father's search for peace with his distraught wife and community while he ceaselessly searches for his renegade daughter.
A difficult film to watch, just as the book was challenging to read. But somehow the mirror it holds up to society as we are currently living it makes the disturbing experience all the more poignant.
