I enjoyed this tremendously
Rebel in the Rye is a decent film. It is about life of celebrated but reclusive author, J.D. Salinger. Nicholas Hoult and Victor Garber give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Danny Strong did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.
Modesto biopic sobre el escritor Salinger, nada sobresaliente.
We've seen the tortured Artist biopic (JD Salinger this go round) many a time and the cliches are here, but nonetheless well done, well acted, and worth seeing.
Excellent movie about a difficult subject. If it weren't for WWII, J. D. Salinger's life would've been, in appearance, the most boring ever. But in his head were the thoughts and feelings we all shared and he had the unique talent to express it perfectly. As a fan, it's almost embarrassing to be interested in his personal life when he so desperately wanted to stay separate from Holden Caulfield. As a pennance I will read the book for the nth time.
Just came across this movie. Don't even remember hearing about it. I have read no reviews, nor have I researched anything about it. I did recognize a few of the actors but was not influenced by that much.
I hoped as a follower of Salinger and his work, that I wouldn't find it cheesy.
I loved it.
It's very sad we that don't see Mr. Spacey these days anymore! Hope see him on the silver screen soon.
Is this Kevin Spacey's last movie? JD Salinger's quest to write Catch in the Rye is told about a man, troubled before, becomes more so after WWII. The journey to writing one of the most important novels of the 20th century is told here. the impact of its success and the aftermath is told. In the end, according to the movie, writing became Salinger's "religion" more than anything else. (Was the last writing published in 1965?) this tells the tale of an artist; interesting.
A paint by numbers bio pic. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm thankful for this film though, because I just reread The Catcher in the Rye, and it's even better than I remember.
Absolutely fantastic film!!!
Loved every second of it!
