September 19, 2013 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

An ambitious but laughably overwrought attempt to tell the story of reclusive “Catcher in the Rye” author J. D. Salinger. Burdened with ludicrous dramatic reenactments and an overbearing orchestral score, the movie epitomizes everything in the culture from which Salinger himself fled. It is, as Holden Caulfield would put it, phony.
