This is an excellent movie that I have watched several times. James Dean was such a wonderful actor and played an excellent role in this. Natalie Wood was of course amazing as always; a great movie, a true classic
This is such an outstanding movie. Very powerful performances by James Dean and I have always thought Natalie Wood was one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Even though it is a old movie it is a movie I could watch again and again. They both really have great chemistry in this dynamic movie. If you have never seen this movie you should try to watch it . Even the younger generation of today I think would really enjoy it.
After moving to a new town, troublemaking teen Jim Stark (James Dean) is supposed to have a clean slate, although being the new kid in town brings its own problems. While searching for some stability, Stark forms a bond with a disturbed classmate, Plato (Sal Mineo), and falls for local girl Judy (Natalie Wood). However, Judy is the girlfriend of neighborhood tough, Buzz (Corey Allen). When Buzz violently confronts Jim and challenges him to a drag race, the new kid's real troubles begin.
A classic James Dean movie. An amazing cast that breathes life into these troubled characters. Their exceptional talent is mesmerizing and their anguish raw and pulsating with repressed frustration. This trio of misfits was drawn together and their lives will ultimately change. They've chosen the path leading to their destiny and unfortunately for one; there is no turning back.
