DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
Starting at a new high school, and feeling betrayed by his combative parents, teenager Jim Stark (Dean) tries desperately to fit in. Soon, he becomes a father figure and mentor to bullied Plato (Sal Mineo) and new boyfriend to Judy (Natalie Wood) the misunderstood girlfriend of the leader of a gang. But its plot is less about specifics and more about the anguish of being a teenager, and Dean's emotionally charged performance has made this a classic for the ages.
