Sundance 2017: 'Rebel in the Rye' Review

I never met Danny Strong when he and I went to USC, but I obviously have noted what he's done since then. Starting out as an actor, he's become a go-to writer on the Hunger Games movies, as well as written Recount and Game Change. (He also co-created Empire.) He makes his feature directorial debut with Rebel in the Rye, which is about J.D. Salinger and his writing of The Catcher in the Rye. I will say this: It made me want to read the book again. As for the movie ..... well, you can read my thoughts over at Screen International.
