Opening Night Gala/Reception/Coming Through the Rye

Director: James Sadwith
- Drama - USA - 97 Min - Unrated

May 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Gala start: 6pm

Film start: 7pm

Tickets can be bought for both the Gala + Film or just for the film. See below for the two ticketing options.

The party begins at 6:00 with a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres followed by a screening of Coming Through the Rye , directed by James Sadwith starting at 7:00. A sensitive young man, obsessed with Holden Caulfield, runs away from his prep school in search of J.D. Salinger. On the way, he meets a plucky young woman who joins him on his odyssey. Together they confront love, sex and… Salinger. Based on Woodstock filmmaker Jim Sadwith’s own experience as a young man, this beautifully shot film, fresh off the film festival circuit, is a touching coming-of-age story starring Alex Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band), Stefania Owen (The Carrie Diaries) and co-starring Chris Cooper as the reclusive Salinger. James Sadwith’s TV movies, mini-series and drama series have won or been nominated for over thirty-five Emmy Awards and Golden Globes.

 

Price of gala ticket includes reception with Jim Sadwith, special guests and the film, followed by a Q&A with James Sadwith.
