Fantasy blends with fiction in this ethereal black and white drama set in the 1950s, and following outsider icon James Dean (James Preston) on his rise to fame. Dan Glenn, Robert Gant, Erin Daniels and Edward Singletary co-star.
Iconoclastic Features, in association with Jay-X Entertainment and MGDB Productions France, presents the new motion picture about an outsider icon. Written and directed by Matthew Mishory and starring James Preston in the title role, Joshua Tree, 1951 redefines James Dean for a new generation.
“A nuanced portrayal of an entire era...JOSHUA TREE gives us an account of the process by which Hollywood molds an individual into its systemic image of a star.
That it accomplishes this through a formal subversion of Hollywood's stylistic code...makes the message all the more subtle.”
-- Travis Jeppesen, Artforum
“An evocative, nuanced, visually stunning black and white intimate portrait of a period of time in the life of James Dean before he was a household name.”
