Before “East of Eden” and becoming a household name, James Dean was a rising actor photographed by Dennis Stock for LIFE magazine, which is the focus of Anton Corbijn’s latest film, “Life.”
Dane DeHaan stars as Dean, a rising Hollywood star filled with fear and skepticism, who is featured on the cover of LIFE thanks to Stock, played by Rob Pattinson. As Dean and Stock travel from Los Angeles to New York and Indiana, the two form a friendship as Dean rises to fame.
