Movie Trailer: SALINGER

Director: Shane Salerno
Starring: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, John Guare, Tom Wolfe, Danny DeVito

When I saw Blue Jasmine last week, I was fascinated by a new documentary coming out from Shane Salerno. Salerno digs deep into the life of reclusive author J.D. Salinger. I think it is pretty safe to say that almost anyone that read their required reading list in high school has read "The Catcher in the Rye". I know I read it and loved it. I still consider it my favorite book but I haven't read it since my high school days. Would I still sympathize with the misunderstood Holden Caulfield or find him annoying? Maybe I'll pick it up again soon.

Salerno has interviewed dozens of actors, writers, journalists, family, and friends of Salinger to delve into why people are so fascinated by him. I am intrigued by all of the controversy that surrounds like book. How does one book move someone like Mark David Champman to murder? Salerno definitely seems to have done his research and literary fans will most likely flock to to this documentary to learn more about his life.

Here's the trailer:
