In 1967, author and former air force pilot (and Bridgehampton resident) James Salter published what would become his most famous work, A Sport and A Pastime. A love letter to youth, romance, and provincial France, the novel shocked and enthralled the world with its poetic prose and frank sexuality. This warm, incisive documentary intercuts Salter’s reflections on his life and work with archival photographs, commentary from friends like Robert Redford and Reynolds Price, and readings of text from the book. An intimate, deeply moving portrait of one of the greatest American writers of the last century.
