Rebel without a Cause

The immortal James Dean ended his big-screen legacy with this 1955 classic, an ode to teenagers and delinquents. Rebellious and emotionally scarred, teenager Jim Stark rages against the adult world and seeks for the love his family didn't give him. Co- stars Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo and Edward Platt. This was the first film to have Dean top billed, released shortly after his Academy Award-nominated role in East of Eden and less than a month after his fatal car crash.

The drama and hepcat dialogue feel clunky now, but the movie's plea for dads to talk to their children - what we now call emotional literacy - is valid enough.

Like its hero, desperately wants to say something and doesn't know what it is. If it did know, it would lose its fascination.

Doomed romantic idealism and telling performances make this the most timeless of Ray's gripping, socially aware dramas.

A movie for anyone who's ever been a teenager.
