Drifting floozy Billie Nash gets a bar job where she seduces the owner's husband by convincing him to defraud his drunkard wife in order to elope together to Mexico but a sleazy neighbor with designs on Billie jeopardizes her plans.
When some people from the other side of the mountain invade the territory of a farming family, the family head tries to unite the family and fight back. But then problems within the family start to appear as well.
If you really want to hear about it, SADLY, Salinger doc was awful. Terribly executed and most of all PHONY. It's everything Salinger himself hated. Bombastic, sensationalistic, voyeuristic, and just plan dull. To make up for it the genius of a director adds the worst over-scored music just so you know what to feel during each moment. AND to make matters worst, there are cheesy reenactments of a shadowy guy playing Salinger at a typewriter smoking a cig through out. As a JD fan I felt shitty watching it. There was one real moment in the whole film(WW2 vet telling a story). But thats all. It'll kill ya, whether you adore Salinger or love documentaries, it'll tear you to pieces for two and a half hours. Ugh! The horrible reviews were dead on. The book is a bit better, I must say, but doesn't make me want to finish it. I'll just wait until Salinger's new stories come out. Fingers crossed.
