Joanna: The job of an agent is to open up opportunities for their clients, but, when it came to Salinger, the logic was reversed. We had to shield him from the outside world, bolstering his reputation as a complicated recluse.

Wonderful love ode to writing
27 February 2020 | by denis-23791See all my reviews

Excellently played by the protagonist and Weaver, her antagonist. We're drawn into the world of literature and enjoy and suffer it through this heart-warming coming-of-age story of the protagonist who learns to make decisions, bravely pursue her dreams and handle her relationships. Feel-good cinema.
