Synopsis

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, part portrait of a great artist, part love story, part exploration of the postware Hollywood machine, the film’s surreal and dreamlike vignettes blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in his short yet remarkable life.

Joshua Tree presents a side of James Dean seldom glimpsed and redefines him for a new generation.
