Salinger is the first comprehensive documentary to look beyond The Catcher in the Rye author J. D. Salinger's meticulously built up wall: his childhood, painstaking work methods, marriages, private world and the secrets he left behind after his death in 2010. The documentary's research includes the contributions of over 150 interviewees, including Salinger's friends and colleagues, who have never spoken on the record before, as well as film footage, photographs and other material that has never before been seen. Additionally, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Danny DeVito, John Guare, Martin Sheen, David Milch, Robert Towne, Tom Wolfe, E.L. Doctorow, Gore Vidal and Pulitzer Prize winners A. Scott Berg and Elizabeth Frank talk about Salinger's influence on their lives, their work and the broader culture. Official Web Site
