"Captivating ... managed with grace, tenderness and touching credibility by a wonderfully winning Qualley in concert with Philippe Falardeau's smart, engaging direction and screenplay." – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

After leaving graduate school to pursue her dream of becoming a writer, Joanna (Margaret Qualley, The Leftovers) gets hired as an assistant to Margaret (Sigourney Weaver, Gorillas In The Mist, The TV Set), the stoic and old-fashioned literary agent of J. D. Salinger. Fluctuating between poverty and glamour, she spends her days in a plush, wood-paneled office – where Dictaphones and typewriters still reign and agents doze off after three-martini lunches – and her nights in a Brooklyn apartment with her socialist boyfriend. Joanna's main task is processing Salinger's voluminous fan mail, but as she reads the heart-wrenching letters from around the world, she becomes reluctant to send the agency's impersonal standard letter and impulsively begins personalizing the responses. The results are both humorous and moving as Joanna, while using the great writer's voice, begins to discover her own.
