My New York Year (2021)

Drama 1h 41m

My New York Year follows Joanna (Margaret Qualley), young and full of ambition, as she moves to New York to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Hired as an assistant to literary agent Margaret (Sigourney Weaver), Joanna answers an endless pile of J. D. Salinger’s fan-mail under the guidance of a boss who completely rejects 90s modernity; typewriters and dictaphones reign in the plush, wood-panelled office. Fluctuating between her high-glamour work-life and a tiny Brooklyn-apartment, Joanna struggles to find her own writing voice at home, and make her voice heard at work. Adapted from Joanna Rakoff’s memoir, this satisfying coming-of-age tale is full of heart, as Joanna faces her moment of creative enlightenment.
