REBEL IN THE RYE

YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT -

Biopic. This film sheds light on reclu­sive US au­thor JD Salinger (Ni­cholas Hoult), who shot to star­dom when his novel The Catcher in the Rye was pub­lished. We get a glimpse of his writing process, tor­tured men­tal state and ex­pe­ri­ences dur­ing World War 2. There’s also a ro­mance thrown in for good mea­sure.

It’s re­ceived medi­ocre re­views but it’s a worth a watch, not least due to good per­for­mances by Hoult and the now dis­graced Kevin Spacey as Salinger’s men­tor. – JANE SUR­TEES 2017. 105 MIN. 13DV. ALSO ON DSTV BOX OF­FICE.
