A new trailer for Shane Salerno's J.D. Salinger documentary surfaced late Thursday, just hours before the film's limited-release opening.

The latest look at Salerno's exploration of the mysterious author features talk about his relationships with young women, including former lover Joyce Maynard finding out about Salinger's penchant for sending letters to girls.

His pursuit of Eugene O'Neill's daughter is also teased, as are angry outbursts he directed toward various acquaintances.

"I trusted you with it and now I'll never trust you again with anything," one former friend recalls Salinger saying.

The score becomes increasingly suspenseful as people talk about the mystery of why Salinger stopped publishing and whether there was something wrong with the Catcher in the Rye author.
