In Rebel in the Rye, the world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life. Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, the film Rye follows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill 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.
