A young man sets off to find J.D. Salinger and confronts love, sex and loss in the touching coming-of-age drama COMING THROUGH THE RYE, arriving on DVD December 27, 2016. The film arrives on Digital HD and On Demand December 13.
Sixteen-year-old Jamie Schwartz is not the most popular kid at his all boys’ boarding school. Disconnected from students and teachers, he believes he is destined to play Holden Caulfield, the main character from The Catcher in the Rye and has adapted the book as a play. After a series of increasingly hostile altercations with the boys at school, Jamie runs away to search for J.D. Salinger. On his way he picks up Deedee Gorlin, a quirky townie. Their odyssey to find Salinger becomes a journey of sexual awakening, the discovery of love and of the meaning of one’s life.
COMING THROUGH THE RYE stars Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper (Best Supporting Actor, Adaptation, 2003) as J.D. Salinger, Alex Wolff (“The Naked Brothers Band,” “In Treatment”) and Stefania Owen (“The Carrie Diaries”).
The COMING THROUGH THE RYE DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with English 5.1 Dolby Digital and English 2.0 Dolby Digital.
