Rebel in the Rye
In a solid, well-acted and basically standard biopic of ‘‘Catcher in the Rye’’ author J.D. Salinger, Nicholas Hoult plays ‘‘Jerry’’ as cocky and smart-alecky but fragile and self-centered. Unfortunately, we don’t see the full transformation of Salinger into the ever-more-eccentric author who all but disappeared from the world (and from publishing) for nearly a half-century. (Biography, PG-13, 1 hr. 49 min.)
Jake Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary guy fighting to recover after the Boston Marathon bomb shatters his legs, is a finely calibrated performance, one of the best of his career and deserving of nomination talk. What elevates ‘‘Stronger’’ above the triumph-over-adversity norm is the pitch-perfect feel for the dynamic of a loud and dysfunctional but fiercely loyal and loving extended family. (Biography, R, 1 hr. 59 min.)
Opening at Jasper 8 Theatres: "Kingsman: Golden Circle," "Friend Request" and "Lego Ninjago."
