Dakota Joins the Cast of “American Pastoral”

Posted by Madison on August 6th, 2014

Exciting news! Dakota has been cast as Merry Levov in American Pastoral, directed by Philip Noyce. She’ll star opposite Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Connelly (both playing her parents). Filming is set to begin in Pittsburgh next March.

The movie is based on a book of the same name by Philip Roth, published in 1997, which won the Pulitzer Prize the following year. I’ll definitely be checking it out to learn Merry’s story. The book description is as follows:

In American Pastoral, Philip Roth gives us a novel of unqualified greatness that is an elegy for all the twentieth century’s promises of prosperity, civic order, and domestic bliss. Roth’s protagonist is Seymour "Swede" Levov – a legendary high school athlete, a devoted family man, a hard worker, the prosperous inheritor of his father’s Newark glove factory – comes of age in thriving, triumphant post-war America. And then one day in 1968, Swede’s beautiful American luck deserts him.

For Swede’s adored daughter, Merry, has grown from a loving, quick-witted girl into a sullen, fanatical teenager – a teenager capable of an outlandishly savage act of political terrorism. And overnight Swede is wrenched out of the longed-for American pastoral and into the indigenous American berserk. Compulsively readable, propelled by sorrow, rage, and a deep compassion for its characters, this is Roth’s masterpiece.

New Look for Lovely Dakota

Posted by Madison on July 18th, 2014

You’ll notice Lovely Dakota has a brand new look! I loved the previous layout but as it had been up for over a year, I thought we could use a change. This layout features Dakota’s photo shoot with Alexei Hay for Jalouse earlier this year. If anything looks a bit odd or you’re seeing images from the last layout, pressing Ctrl + F5 on your keyboard should fix it for you.

As for Dakota news, photos of her and Jamie out together on Thursday can be found below:
