    IFC Films has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming

    Trailer: (2mins 21secs)

    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
