The Rivertown Film Festival is set to premiere a new film Friday in its final season.
The film is “Catch The Wilder,” a tale of two young people who become separated at birth from their mother in a small town.
They soon reconnect in their 20s, and it is an unusual journey, said director and producer Brian Sjoberg.
The film follows the life of two families in this small town and the lives of their two sons.
The title “Catching the Wilders” is a reference to the fictional character in the novel of the same name, written by J.D. Salinger.
Salinger’s novel, “A Christmas Carol,” was published in 1928 and was adapted into the 1962 film “Salinger.”
Sjobergs is not the only one to use the novel as inspiration.
In 2014, director Adam McKay adapted the novel into a film.
