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.

Be Passionate & Courageous, Take the Risk, Enjoy the Journey, Reflect...
25 April 2016 | by dklein7See all my reviews

I never read The Catcher in the Rye and I didn't know how that would affect what I thought of this film. I found you don't have to read the book to enjoy this movie. I thoroughly enjoyed Coming Through the Rye. A great coming of age movie! This movie draws you in right from the very beginning and never lets you go! It's sneaky deep, after reflecting on the movie for a day or so, many thoughts came to me. This movie teaches us to Be Passionate and Courageous, it Encourages us to Take the Risk, To Enjoy the Journey, Reflect on the Process and Become Better because you took that Risk and Journey! Excellent Movie!!! 2 Thumbs Up!!!
