Not what we’re used to seeing today. Loved the story & emotions. Shows you that teens want to be understood & adults need to recognize this!

I saw this film when I was very young and I loved it. Seeing it today I understand the conflicts from the view points of both the teenagers and the adults. The stars were fabulous and are legends for a reason.

I seen this when I was 16 and now again at 78. I understand a lot more of what they were going threw now than I did then.

AMC theaters are the worst for the Fathom movies. They charge full price for the matinee time.

My first time seeing #Rebel. It was so much more than a few good quotes. The message is just as real and relatable TODAY. A definite #mustsee.

Metacritic

80

Rebel Without a Cause has such beautiful color photography that it seems almost impossible to conceive of the fact that they initially started filming it in black and white. Dean is every bit as tormented here as he was in East of Eden, but it’s more of an existential torment this time.

A milestone in the creation of new idea about young people.
