“An American Pickle” is a comedy movie directed by Brandon Trost and starring Seth Aaron Rogen, Sarah Snook, Maya Erskine, etc., which will be released on HBO Max on August 6, 2020.
Based on the novella “Sell Out,” which appeared in The New Yorker in 2013, the comedy movie tells the story of a poor worker who wakes up after being sealed in a pickle jar for a hundred years, gets along with his great-grandson, and understands each other.
Filled with dialogue and conflict between past and present, An American Pickle features two characters from different eras, and through Seth Aaron Rogen’s performance, the comedy movie has expressed its theme. The main conflict of the film is the double performance of Seth Aaron Rogen, both of which are vivid and dramatic.
The comedy movie might be seen as the self-ripping dream of a successful writer who examines his own life and wonders what his ancestors would have thought. When Rogan confronts Rogan, the scene is filled with self-loathing, but also a sense of self-reflection that is rooted in culture and conditioning. At the same time, however, the scenes are filled with respect for the generations that Herschel transformed into.
In 1920, laborer Herschel Greenbaum, an immigrant to the United States, accidentally fell into a jar of pickles, which were marinated for a hundred years, maintaining their perfect shape. One hundred years later, Greenbaum woke up in Brooklyn, New York, not a little old. He goes to find his family, only to find that only great-grandson Ben Greenbaum remains. Ben Greenbaum is a mild-mannered programmer, and Herschel Greenbaum can’t understand him at all. Herschel wanted to start the kimchi business again, but the grandson completely disagreed, but the old man succeeded in the comedy movie.
An immigrant worker at a pickle factory is accidentally preserved for 100 years and wakes up in modern-day Brooklyn.
A simple Jewish man named Herschel Greenbaum works in a pickle factory in Brooklyn. One day he falls into a vat of brine and stays there, perfectly preserved, for 100 years. He comes back to life and goes to stay with his great-great-grandson, Ben, in contemporary Brooklyn in the comedy movie.
