Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean
Dir: Matthew Mishory, USA, 2012, 94mins Moody, sexy and oozing Hollywood glamour, this modern film noir tells the story of James Dean before he was famous. Stunningly handsome Abercrombie & Fitch model James Preston plays Dean as a gay actor on the cusp of becoming both a major star and an outsider icon - ambitious, risk-taking, and the object of desire for those around him. Dreamy, stylised, with ravishing black-and-white cinematography and a soundtrack swooning with 1950s pop and jazz, this is a clearly a work of passion that really must be seen on the big screen.
