The trailer for My Salinger Years has arrived, a film based on a novel in which Margaret Qualley becomes the assistant of a terrible literary agent with the face of Sigourney Weaver.
Margaret Qualley, as well as being the daughter of the beautiful Andie MacDowell, with whom she bears a fair resemblance, is a young actress, whom we have seen in The Nice Guys, Death Note – The notebook of death, in Once upon a time … in Hollywood and in the tv series The Leftovers, where was Jill Garvey. In the not too distant future we will be able to admire it in a film entitled My Salinger Year, which opened this year’s Berlin Film Festival and which also features a great film woman: Sigourney Weaver.
My Salinger Year is directed by Philippe Falardeau, who is the director of Mr. Lazhar, and is taken from the biographical novel of the same name by Joanna Rakoff “A year with Salinger “. The film could remember, due to the dynamic that is created between the two main characters, The devil wears Prada, although here we are not in the world of fashion but of literature and instead of Miranda Priestly, editor of the fashion magazine Runway, there is Margaret, literary agent of the legendary J. D. Salinger, the author of “The young Holden”, so to speak.
The plot of My Salinger Year
Joanna she dreams of becoming a writer, but in the New York of the 90s her wish is struggling to come true. So when he finds work as an assistant to the literary agent Margaret, he realizes he has to grab the opportunity. He keeps calm even when the phone won’t stop ringing or when he has to endure Margaret, who certainly does not have an open mind and who is decidedly stubborn. In the agency, however, everything seems to revolve around a single person, the acclaimed and no longer young writer J.D. Salinger, to which letters after letters from admirers to whom Joanna must answer. As she slowly detaches herself from her boyfriend, who is too fond of worldliness, Joanna he discovers his love of writing right through Salinger, who has become a kind of ghost, and begins to respond to letters addressed to him in a way that is anything but cold and impersonal.
The trailer for My Salinger Year
My Salinger Years, who does not yet have a release date, also sees in the cast Douglas Booth, Brian F. O’Byrne e Yanic Truesdale. The limelight, however, as you can guess from the trailer, is all about the bubbly Qualley and for one Sigourney Weaver with 60s goggles and some white tuft.
