My Salinger Year

My Salinger Year ★★★★½

Margaret Qualley brings to life a character that still lives in me eight months later. My interest in Salinger goes back to my teen years, and that initially is why I chose to see the film. But Qualley's embodiment of a post-grad entering the literary world is so believable and endearing that I am on the fence about a five star rating.
After seeing the film and her performance, I read the book from which the film was adapted, a kind of reverse from how I usually take in literary works.
It doesn't hurt that both the book and film add to the mystique behind J. D. Salinger which was another thing that thoroughly endeared me to the film.
