A young woman is hired for a bookish maybe-dream-job…what’s right, and when to write?

Set in the 1990s, Joanna Rakoff moves from Berkeley to New York, leaving one life behind and finding another, captivated by the city and determined to find herself. She lands a job at a literary agency that represents legendary writers, including Salinger. Joanna makes right and wrong moves at work, lives through trial-and-error socialization, and has to make some decisions … with words of advice from the famous author of Catcher in the Rye himself. The characters are flawed and genuine, and the atmosphere down to earth yet sometimes surreal. This movie is quirky, cozy, and perfect for literary lovers!
