Sarah Gadon, Jaeger-LeCoultre friend of the brand, attended the 2016 Sundance Film Festival to present her two new projects: first Indignation, written and directed by James Schamus is based on a Philipp Roth bestseller and takes place in the 1950’s. Marcus (Logan Lerman), a working-class Jewish student from New Jersey, attends a small Ohio college, where he struggles with sexual repression and cultural disaffection; set against the backdrop of the ongoing Korean War. Sarah plays Olivia Hutton, a young, pretty and fiercely independent classmate of Marcus: a upper middle class mid-west beauty running up against the ideology and power structures of the time. Indignation, written and directed by James Schamus is based on a Philipp Roth amazing book and takes place in the 1950’s.
The other project is the TV show based on the amazing Stephen King’s bestseller 22/11/63about a time traveller who attempts to prevent the assasination of JFK which occurred on November 22, 1963 (the novel’s titular date). The novel was announced on King’s official site on March 2, 2011. A short excerpt was released online on June 1, 2011, and another excerpt was published in the October 28, 2011, issue of Entertainment Weekly. The novel was published on November 8, 2011 and quickly became a number-one bestseller. It stayed on The New York Time Best/Seller list for 16 weeks. Sarah stars alongside James Franco, winner of the Jaeger-LeCoultre to the Filmmaker Award in 2014 at the Venice International Film Festival. The Show, which will air in the US on February 15, 2016, highlights the Kennedy assassination; with a sweeping love story at its core. Sarah plays Sadie Dunhill, a librarian from the early 60’s who steals the heart of James Franco’s character, Jake Epping, which ultimately changes the course of history. Jaeger-LeCoultre proud to be associated with such an accomplished actress.
