Cinema Capitol will present MY SALINGER YEAR, a comedy-drama based upon Joanna Rakoff’s popular 2014 memoir of the same name. The movie will play from Friday, March 19 through Monday, March 22.
In New York City’s late 1990s, Rakoff (Margaret Qualley) lands a day-job at a literary agency. The business is entrusted with the banal but also near-sacred task of dealing with the fan letters sent to their most famous and reclusive client: JD Salinger. While her eccentric and old-fashioned boss (Sigourney Weaver) tasks her to process Salinger’s voluminous fan mail, Rakoff struggles to find her own voice in the literary world. Also starring in the movie are Douglas Booth and Colm Feore.
TIMES (U.K.) writes that the movie is “a casting triumph.” THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD describes MY SALINGER YEAR as “a coming-of-age story told with a sophistication that only makes it all the more touching. In recalling her youth, Rakoff is revisiting a time which has a nostalgic glow attached to it for anyone remotely interested in the power of the written word.”
MY SALINGER YEAR will be presented on Friday and Saturday at 4:00 and 7:00, Sunday at 1:00 and 4:00, and Monday at 7:00. There will be no captioned show times for this movie.
All patrons are required to wear masks for the duration of the movie, unless eating or drinking. Parties will be socially-distanced at least 6 feet apart.
Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at at this link. Admission is $8.00 for adults; $7.00 for students and military; and $6.00 for Capitol “Friends.”
MY SALINGER YEAR runs 101 minutes and is rated R.
