Film Series: Rebel Without a Cause

1955. USA. Dir: Nicholas Ray. With James Dean, Natalie Wood. 111 min.

Dean broods and smolders in his iconic role as the new kid who clashes with bullies and authorities but forms a tender bond with his fellow outsiders. Few films have justified the emphatically wide CinemaScope frame and vivid color quite like Ray’s intense parable of teen angst.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
