2015 Heartland Film Festival Closing Night Film, Coming Through the Rye, is now available to watch across multiple platforms including: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and DVD!
Coming Through the Rye, set in 1969, is a touching coming of age story of sensitive, 16-year-old Jamie Schwartz, who is not the most popular kid at his all boys’ boarding school. Disconnected from students and teachers, he believes he is destined to play Holden Caulfield, the main character of The Catcher in the Rye and has adapted the book as a play. After a series of increasingly hostile altercations with the boys at school Jamie runs away to search for J.D. Salinger. On his way he picks up Deedee Gorlin, a quirky townie. Their odyssey to find Salinger becomes a journey of sexual awakening, the discovery of love and of the meaning of one’s life.
We were lucky enough to host Director/Writer/Producer Jim Sadwith, Actor Alex Wolff, Actress Stefania Owen, and Producer Sara Elizabeth Timmins at the 2015 Heartland Film Festival Closing Night Screening & After-Party.
