Nicholas Hoult plays the young J.D. Salinger struggling to find his voice as a writer. This includes his first crush, the trauma of fighting in World War II and the crucial mentorship of a college professor (Kevin Spacey). The narrative follows him from through the long gestation and eventual publication of his famous “Catcher in the Rye,” then continues to explore the subsequent success that led to his reclusive lifestyle. Hoult retains his charming appeal, even when his character is unlikeable. Spacey adds a lighthearted edge to his performance that makes him enjoyable. Although this biopic doesn’t break any new ground in style or structure, it effectively tells the fascinating tale of this famous writer’s struggles and accomplishments. Fun Fact: Salinger and I share the same first name: Jerome.
