“If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap…” J.D. Salinger

Barring a few time jumps, our story begins as Jerry Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) enters the Columbia University creative writing class of the Story magazine editor Whit Burnett (Kevin Spacey). Under Burnett’s tutelage, Salinger learns to reel in his clever voice for the sake of narrative, finding a harmony that (as most 20th-century readers would agree) made him one of the greatest American writers.

After Burnett first publishes Salinger, things start looking up. His self-loathing Jewish father (Victor Garber) still wants him to get a real job, but being published helps Jerry “get the girl”, in this case Zoey Deutch’s Oona O’Neill. Then, two catastrophes strike. First, the New Yorker, Jerry’s dream publication, won’t accept his latest story unless he heeds the magazine’s notes. Second, Japan invades Pearl Harbor. Jerry joins the army and, just before his D-Day deployment, he gets some extra salt in the wound when Oona leaves him for Charlie Chaplin, 36 years her senior. Salinger’s war experience, which included liberating a concentration camp, sent him into mental breakdown (and lifelong PTSD), but the thing that kept him safe during his time in Europe was writing about Holden Caulfield.

"I thought it was 'If a body catch a body,'" I said. "Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around — nobody big, I mean — except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy." J.D. Salinger
