Synopsis: It is based on "Catcher in the Rye" about a young man, Holden Caulfield who is narrates his story which takes place between over a few days between the end of the fall school term and Christmas when he was sixteen years of age.
What the Press Would Say:
Isn't it ironic that Jake Gyllenhaal is in two movies dealing with Holden Caulfield? Elijah Wood is Holden Caulfield; he makes the audience believe that he is the actually Catcher in the Rye. We would not be surprised if this film gets nominated for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Acting nods. An excellent movie experience for the teenage kid.
