Storyline

Coming Through the Rye, set in 1969, is a touching coming of age story of sensitive, 16 yr. old Jamie Schwartz, who 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 of 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 JD 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.

This is a great movie
25 April 2016 | by jene-83903See all my reviews

I saw this recently at The Cleveland International Film Festival at the end of a week of seeing 13 really great films. Even though another film had caught my eye as being my favorite, this one immediately replaced it at the top of my list of the whole festival! I was completely mesmerized by it from the first moment it started to the last.

This is such a delightful movie. It is beautifully shot - lovely scenery, beautiful cinematography, soft and warm. I felt like I was there. It is really well acted by two new actors and some veteran ones who blended into a sweet story. A lovely story that almost everyone could relate to. The characters are so real, you feel like you know them.

I wanted to watch it again right then! It is so great, I wouldn't only see it again - I would own it! It needs to be in theaters so everyone can see it.
