Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die.

His career was brief. His impact was lasting. In just three major movies, James Dean gave voice to teen angst in a way that set the standard for actors to come. That sense of young inner turmoil was something new to the screen, but it wasn't new to Dean. It came from his own life.

Mark Rydell (On Golden Pond) directs this revealing dramatization of the life behind the legend. James Franco plays Dean in an uncanny portrait of the actor whose troubled life paralleled his roles in East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant. Dreams. Struggles. Feverish success. They're all part of this blazing tale of Dean's too-short life. And when that life abruptly ended, the legend took on a life of its own.
