Goofs

Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) appears to look at the back of the camera after each shot, throughout the movie. In modern times with a digital camera this would make sense as it would show a preview of shot just taken , but with film cameras this does not apply. There is nothing to see. See more »

User Reviews

 
Its an OK drama.
16 April 2016 | by nikolobgSee all my reviews

A movie about James Dean stands or falls by the portrayal of the man. Everything else is secondary to capturing that unique mesmerizing person.

I am a straight male, yet I remember the first time I googled that name and started browsing his photos. There was something there completely out of the ordinary. Strength with fragility, sadness with mischievousness, rebellion resting in the moment. Its like watching young Marlon Brando or Ryan Gosling in a movie like Drive, there is something extraordinary there your brain cant define but can understand.

Dane DeHaan, who I don't know outside of this movie, could probably portray Justin Bieber just fine, but playing James Dean requires a different beast of an actor all together.
