New My Salinger Year Trailer
starring Margaret Qualley & Sigourney Weaver
IFC Films has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming
drama film titled My Salinger Year, featuring Emmy-nominee
Margaret Qualley as an aspiring writer who was assigned to
deal with J.D. Salinger's numerous fan mails. Also starring
Golden Globe winner Sigourney Weaver, the film will be
arriving in theaters on March 5, 2021. Check out the video
in the player below!
New York in the '90s: After leaving graduate school to
pursue her dream of becoming a writer, Joanna (Margaret
Qualley) gets hired as an assistant to Margaret (Sigourney
Weaver), the stoic and old-fashioned literary agent of
J. D. Salinger. Fluctuating between poverty and glamour,
she spends her days in a plush, wood-paneled office - where
dictaphones and typewriters still reign and agents doze off
after three-martini lunches - and her nights in a sink-less
Brooklyn apartment with her socialist boyfriend. Joanna's
main task is processing Salinger's voluminous fan mail, but
as she reads the heart-wrenching letters from around the
world, she becomes reluctant to send the agency's
impersonal standard letter and impulsively begins
personalizing the responses. The results are both humorous
and moving, as Joanna, while using the great writer's
voice, begins to discover her own.
Alongside Qualley and Weaver, the cast for the film
includes Douglas Booth (Mary Shelley, The Dirt), Brian F.
O'Byrne (Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector), Colm
Feore (The Umbrella Academy, For All Mankind) and Yanic
Truesdale (Gilmore Girls).
Based on Joanna Rakoff's memoir of the same name,
My Salinger Year is written and directed by Phillippe
Falardeau, best-known for previously helming the
Oscar-nominated drama Monsieur Lazhar, the Reese
Witherspoon-starring drama The Good Lie, and the eponymous
Chuck Wepner biopic starring Liev Schreiber in the titular
