AN AMERICAN PICKLE
Director: Brandon Trost

Seth Rogen plays two roles in An American Pickle, the new film streaming exclusively on HBO Max. It picks up in 1919 with Rogen as Herschel an Eastern European immigrant worker who takes a job in a pickle factory. A crazy mishap involving rats leads him to falling into a vat of pickle brine where he sits preserved for 100 years. Cut to 2019 when some young kids break into the abandoned factory and crack open the vat. Herschel’s great grandson Ben, also played by Seth Rogen, seems to be his own living heir and helps him readjust to modern day Brooklyn.
