American Pastoral is getting some pretty scathing reviews out of Toronto (I saw one tweet that said it made The Human Stain look better in comparison), so that's one less Oscar contender to wonder about.

After a good string of actor-directed films expected to be shooed into big prize consideration that have fallen on their face, I wonder when prognosticators will finally adjust from so easily making that assumption

I've been wondering if several Roth books would benefit from serious restructuring when adapting them to film. Indignation worked well as a straightforward narrative, but the adaptations of American Pastoral and The Human Stain rely so heavily on the Nathan Zuckerman framing device, and that strikes me as more effective in novel form as opposed to film.
