Movie of the Week

WATCH: Stunning Fictionalized Portrait of James Dean

Writer-director Matthew Mishory’s black-and-white biopic, A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951, is an intimate fictional portrait of bisexual Hollywood hunk James Dean on the cusp of his big break. The uncannily handsome James Preston stars as the legendary ‘50s movie star whose sex appeal for both men and women was undeniable. Stylishly evoking the boundary-pushing sexuality of New Queer Cinema as it focuses on Dean’s experiences as a rising star in Los Angeles, the film’s surreal and dreamlike vignettes blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in his short yet remarkable life.
