"The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude." -Nikola Tesla-
Dane Dehaan portrays a convincing James Dean before his stardom in Hollywood. He is followed by a photographer working for Life magazine, Dennis Stock, who is played by Robert Pattinson. He joins Dean on an impromptu road trip back home where the relationship solidifies into trust and allows for the later snapping of the iconic pictures we now know today. The tricks of a photographer and the love/hate relationship with the camera still exists, but now it’s more with the Paparazzi. If you are looking for a no thrills drama without car chases and twists and turns, this is the movie for you. It’s simply a movie about one man who doesn’t trust anyone but his family, and the other trying to find acceptance in a hard entering profession where not many knocks are heard.
