Synopsis

“A fascinating account of Salinger’s life, with a perfect sense of period and a faultless lead performance by Hoult.” – Filmink

Starring Kevin Spacey and Nicholas Hoult, The Rebel in the Rye is an immersive chronicle of one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers, J.D. Salinger.

Spanning 15 seminal years of Salinger’s life — from his Jewish upbringing and his enrollment in a Columbia writing class with Whit Burnett (Spacey) to his phenomenal success with the iconic novel, Catcher in the Rye — this handsome biopic presents a surprising and comprehensive account of the notoriously reclusive and unconventional author.

Premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
