Adapted by Simon Rich from his 2013 New Yorker novella Sell Out, An American Pickle stars Seth Rogen as Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1919 with dreams of building a better life for his beloved family. One day, while working at his factory job, he falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. The brine preserves him perfectly and when he emerges in present day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn’t aged a day. But when he seeks out his family, he is troubled to learn that his only surviving relative is his great-grandson Ben Greenbaum (also played by Rogen), a mild-mannered computer coder whom Herschel can’t even begin to understand.
The film also stars Sarah Snook, Jorma Taccone, Eliot Glazer and Kalen Allen.
An American Pickle will be released in UK and Irish Cinemas in August. Warner Bros Pictures haven’t mentioned an exact date but we believe it will be 7th August, one day after USA who will watch the film on HBO Max.
