Synopsis

The man behind the legend and a knowing look at 1950’s Hollywood are revealed in this dynamic bioepic of the meteoric star whose troubled life echoed his gut-grabbing performances in East of Eden, Rebel Without A Cause and Giant.

Dove Review

I thought this was a pretty good movie. It was the biography of James Dean which included fact and educated guesses about his life. Not knowing too much about him or his career, I thought it was very informative, but I have read elsewhere that it leaves out quite a bit. From what I’ve seen of Dean, James Franco did a pretty good job of portraying him. This filtered version did a good job with keeping it clean with just a few things to be aware of such as smoking, kissing, a woman in a negligee and Dean in a towel. Overall, it was good movie about a Hollywood legend.
