|Coming Through the Rye – Trailer
Based on the Emmy Award-winning filmmakerâ€™s own true story, 16-year-old Jamie Schwartz (Alex Wolff) wants desperately to be a worldly adolescent. Unhappy at his all-boys boarding school, his life raft is the belief that he will someday play Holden Caulfieldâ€”the complex and alienated main character from the iconic novel The Catcher in the Ryeâ€”on Broadway and in the movies. He adapts theÂ novel as a play and runs away to the mountains of New Hampshire to search for the bookâ€™s reclusive author, JD Salinger (Academy Award winner Chris Cooper). Along the way he is picked up by a local girl, DeeDee Gorlin (Stefania Owen). Their odyssey and the events that follow are a journey into the meanings of friendship, sex, love and loss.
