Rebel in the Rye

Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.


Rebel in the Rye
Set amidst the colourful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, we follow a young J.D. Salinger as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with a famed socialite, and fight on the front-lines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will lead to 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.
