REBEL IN THE RYE

The world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this revealing look at the experiences that shaped one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time. Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, REBEL IN THE RYE follows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life. Co-starring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson, REBEL IN THE RYE offers a tantalizing window into the life and times of a little-understood genius who broke the rules and redefined American literature.

“Thanks to salty dialogue and crisp direction by Strong, and a thorough performance by Nicholas Hoult, you do see how Salinger’s own words, thoughts and actions were reflected in the character of Holden. Hoult, a British actor who has been frittering away his time for years on films in the forgettable big-budget X-MEN movies, shows the torture, anxiety, insecurity and loneliness a great  writer goes through to create a masterpiece.” —Rex Reed, Observer

“The journey of J.D. Salinger from young wiseacre to world-celebrated author and notorious recluse is…credibly, dimensionally etched via director Strong’s smart script, based on the book J.D. Salinger: A Life by Kenneth Slawenski, and by Hoult’s agile depiction of the gifted, prickly, tortured author.” —Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
