The Weinstein Company has released the first incredibly captivating trailer for director Shane Salerno’s documentary Salinger.  As the title suggests, the film centers on the enigmatic life of Catcher in the Rye author J.D. Salinger, who mysteriously stopped publishing in the mid 1960s and retreated from the public eye.  The documentary attempts to unravel the truth behind Salinger’s childhood, work methods, marriages, private world, and secrets, as it includes interviews with a number of colleagues and members of the author’s inner circle of friends who have never before gone on record about the figure. The trailer plays almost like a thriller, and as someone who has been fascinated by Salinger’s life ever since I can remember, I’m incredibly eager to see what insights are gleaned in the full film.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also features interviews with Edward Norton, John Cusack, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Danny DeVito, Martin Sheen, Robert Towne, and more.  Salinger opens in limited release on September 6th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Salinger:

SALINGER features interviews with 150 subjects including Salinger’s friends, colleagues and members of his inner circle who have never spoken on the record before as well as film footage, photographs and other material that has never been seen.  Additionally, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Danny DeVito, John Guare, Martin Sheen, David Milch, Robert Towne, Tom Wolfe, E.L. Doctorow, Gore Vidal and Pulitzer Prize winners A. Scott Berg and Elizabeth Frank talk about Salinger’s influence on their lives, their work and the broader culture.  The film is the first work to get beyond the Catcher in the Rye author’s meticulously built up wall:  his childhood, painstaking work methods, marriages, private world and the secrets he left behind after his death in 2010.
