My Salinger Year Plot

“Falardeau’s film adds a curious chapter to Salinger’s mythology (…) But “My Salinger Year” often trips on the self-serious nature of its premise, and struggles with an antiquated quality out of sync with its timeline” Eric Kohn: IndieWire
“Muted almost to the point of effacement, this limp adaptation (…) only affirms that what might work on the page doesn’t always pop on the screen.” Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times
“An air of possibility permeates ‘My Salinger Year’ (…) The wide-eyed pull of this sensation is so powerful (…) that you can’t help but ease into the story’s allure at once (…) Rating: ??½ (out of 4)” Tomris Laffly: rogerebert.com
