An American Pickle (2020)

This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“This is what we’re reaching for everybody. This is the dream.  This is the goal. Perfect jar of pickles.” – Hershel

Number of Times Seen – 1 (7 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – After falling in a pickle vat, a young pickle maker is preserved for a Century and wakes up in modern day New York where he meets his great great grandson.

Bottom Line – Really fun premise that works due to the way that Rogan plays these dual roles. The story is a bit far fetched, but still has a lovely way about it. The plot moves along at a great pace and the interactions between these characters is hilarious throughout the whole film. The film also has a great message about life, love and pickles which resonates so well throughout.  The way that the film deals with modern social issues from a Century old perspective is great because it allows us to get a very different viewpoint on some of things happening in our world that constantly clash with the viewpoints that history can provide. At the same time, they also give us an intriguing perspective of how one might feel after traveling through time and learning about what happened to their family and friends over the years. Recommended!
