Coming Through the Rye Trailer

"Why are you doing this?" "I like an adventure." Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted a trailer for an indie drama titled Coming Through the Rye, which is yet another story about one person's fascinating with JD Salinger's seminal novel "The Catcher in the Rye". The film tells the "filmmaker's own true story" about a 16-year-old boy who adapts the book into a play then runs away from his boarding school to go looking for author JD Salinger in the New Hampshire mountains. It reminds me a bit of Searching for Bobby Fischer, a similar story about a boy searching for a long, lost reclusive individual. Alex Wolff stars, and he meets Stefania Owen along the way. Chris Cooper plays Salinger and the cast includes Adrian Pasdar and Amy Parrish. This seems like it might have something to offer fans of Salinger and his work. Have a look.

Here's the trailer (+ poster) for James Steven Sadwith's Coming Through the Rye, in high def on Apple:

Coming Through the Rye Poster

Based on the Emmy Award-winning filmmaker'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 Caulfield—the complex and alienated main character from the iconic novel The Catcher in the Rye—on Broadway and in the movies. He adapts the novel as a play and runs away to the mountains of New Hampshire to search for the book's reclusive author, JD Salinger (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. Coming Through the Rye is both written and directed by American filmmaker James Steven Sadwith, of the TV shows "Sinatra" and "Life Is Wild" previously making his feature directorial debut. Samuel Goldwyn will release Coming Through the Rye in select theaters starting October 14th this fall. Anyone interested?

I really wanna punch that kid in the face.

So many kids like him in high schools across the globe. They just need a couple decades to grind their dreams into reality.

Chris Cooper should reactivate the treadstone program to get rid of him.

I've got a dream! Oh yeah, what! TO HAVE A DREAM!~~

Scary Movie 3 is a classic.

Nielsen700 on Sep 25, 2016


Well, that's a good idea to grow more mature ... If it's done ok ...

Yeah...that's probably the case for every movie.

Fairly said. But then again, I have my favorite when I see a Martin Scorsese movie and one with Adam Sandler. And I reckon there's some chances for different kinds of quality in between. So, it does not work the same for all of them ... At least, not for me. I don't have the same expectations from many of them ...

Especially with gross directors like Michael Bay. His movies are offensive to human intellect.

tarek on Sep 26, 2016


Oh, yes, I absolutely agree on this one with you tarek. Painstakingly offensive. Something delicately bad, I dare say. Cheers ...
