About the Movie

As an actor who spoke for an entire generation, James Dean brought his explosive presence to the screen in Nicholas Ray's "tense, exciting melodrama" (Variety). Oscar-nominees and Golden Globe-winners Natalie Wood ("Splendor in the Grass") and Sal Mineo ("Exodus") both earned Oscar nominations for their powerful performances in this realistic journey through a turbulent teenage universe of violence and delinquency. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing. The Library of Congress honored this classic by including it in the National Film Registry. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 75 greatest American films of all time.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There are some excruciating flashes of accuracy and truth in this film. – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Here is a fairly exciting, suspenseful and provocative, if also occasionally far-fetched, melodrama of unhappy youth on another delinquency kick. – Robert J. Landry, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: An indelible vision of a pretty 1950s America with a searing crack in it. – Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 18, 2002

Fresh: Like its hero, Rebel Without a Cause desperately wants to say something and doesn't know what it is. If it did know, it would lose its fascination. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Oct 23, 2007
