Rebel Without a Cause

One of my favorite movies is Rebel Without a Cause. It starred Natalie and James Dean (died so young and tragically). The movie is about teenage angst. Dangerous car races, fight scenes, teenage romance. Doesn’t sound much different then today. This well made movie was brought to audiences everywhere in 1955. The movie centers around Jim Stark (James Dean) as a troubled youth who moves with his family to a new city. There he gets in trouble immediately. He then gets swept up with the wrong crowd, and a lonely rich kid named Plato (Sal Mineo). He meets Judy who’s got problems of her own. They then form their only little misfit circle. Judy and Jim also find romance. With twists and turns, action and romance. This movie is awesome!

This movie is about the bad kids of yesterday. It was a bit dark. Now why’s it here since this is everything adorable. Well… I adore this move, which gives it adorability.

Here’s a trailer for the movie:

    I thought I was the only one. Rebel without a Cause is one of my favorite movies. Unfortunately most teenagers today have never even heard of it or James Dean. I love this movie because it makes depression ok. Most people today think depression is some mental illness that normal people do not have but most people are depressed except they don’t ever express it because they are afraid to express it. Rebel without a Cause makes its ok for teenagers to say that they are depressed and confused in life and they should be at that age. As human beings we don’t always have to be happy all the time and have fake smiles on our faces. I also love this movie because it makes it ok to feel depressed even when your life is almost perfect like Jim Stark’s life is. He has a mom, dad, money, food but hes just depressed. I also love the fact that Jim, Plato are outsiders and this movie almost makes it cool to be outsiders. Rebel without a Cause is a movie that should be shown to every teenager. Jimmy Dean was the best and forever will be the best.
