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.
Fresh: Here is a fairly exciting, suspenseful and provocative, if also occasionally far-fetched, melodrama of unhappy youth on another delinquency kick.
Fresh: An indelible vision of a pretty 1950s America with a searing crack in it.
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.
This is my favorite movie of all time. it is relevant to teens now as it was then. James Dean shines in the performance he is best known for.
still fascinating even now...
This movie does not cease to surprise me, every time I watch it I find new things that I can identify with as a young adult today. I know everyone says this, but James Dean truly revolutionized acting. His performace literally drips of pure emotion, especially in this movie. It's astounding.
I love this movie!
James Dean is as beautiful as his movies!
