ABOUT THE FILM
Joshua Tree, 1951 is a fearless, intimate portrait of James Dean on the cusp of becoming both a great actor and an outsider icon. Set in the early 1950s and focusing 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.
