What to Watch in July

recommended image width: 1088px


Two breakout films from the 2016 Sundance Film Festival come to theaters this July and feature parallels that begin and end with their Ohio-set storylines. In director James Schamus' moody adaptation of Philip Roth's Indignation, Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman) is a headstrong atheist and outlier at an Ohio Christian college where his intrigue with an unstable young woman sweeps him from his previously well-polished identity. Opposite of Schamus' scholarly effort is a street-smart drama from newcomer Steven Cable Jr. that sees a group of skateboarding teens attempting to sell their way out of their blighted upbringing in Cleveland after coming up on a stash of pills. Below, check out of all this month's Sundance-supported releases hitting theaters and digital platforms this month.
