Q&A with Steve Coogan, Sophie Kennedy Clark, and Philomena Lee

How did you come across the book and what compelled you to champion this project?

Q&A with director Shane Salerno

Let’s start by talking about the unique backstory to making this film.
Salerno: I grew up in a house where Salinger was a church. My mom was a huge fan and turned me onto his work, but like everyone, I had no idea about the man, I just knew the work. I started researching this project and found out that J.D. Salinger landed on D-Day, that Salinger participated in these horrible battles, that he lost the love of his life, Oona O’Neill, to Charlie Chaplin.

Q&A with Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, and Chris Pine
