Dakota Fanning & Ewan McGregor Stop by Build Series To Talk 'American Pastoral'

Dakota Fanning joins Valorie Curry and Ewan McGregor for a group pic backstage at the Build Series at AOL HQ in New York City on Thursday (October 20).

Together, the cast opened up about their new movie, American Pastoral, which Ewan also directed.

“It’s a first-person story of a woman who goes through the radicalization of these political groups. And it’s not just about these groups and the politics and the culture of America at the time, but it’s really specifically about what it was to be a woman in those groups—how marginalizing that was and the ways in which they would try to exert power or authority and how they were suppressed within their radical, marginalized groups,” Valorie shared with Vogue recently about the importance of the film.

Check out the vid below on why Dakota wanted to be in the film herself.
