Rebel In The Rye Synopsis

Set in mid-century New York City, the biopic tells the story of J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) and the inspiration behind his creation of the American classic "The Catcher in the Rye" and its beloved lead character Holden Caulfield. The film sheds light on the events that shaped the young author, and some of the influential people who he meets in his pursuit of success - namely his mentor Whit Burnett (played by Kevin Spacey). With unwavering support from his mentor and colleagues (and with Holden always at his side) Salinger overcomes some of life's greatest obstacles - from heartbreak to a brutal war with long-lasting impacts - eventually publishing the novel that propels him to fame. Despite the success he enjoys as an acclaimed author, we see how taxing the creative process can be, and watch as Salinger pays a very high price for his art. The film is as much about the pursuit of artistic expression and how far one will go for their passion, as it is the story of how J.D. Salinger created his masterpiece.

Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, language including sexual references, some violence, and smoking throughout
