Synopsis

New kid in town Jim Stark arrives with a bad reputation; he’s been in trouble in the past which is why his family have had to move to Los Angeles. But he’s soon arrested for drunken behaviour, and at the police station he meets two other juveniles, Judy and Plato, who are also both struggling with issues at home. All three have complicated relationships with their families, and so together they decide to rebel against society around them, falling afoul of a gang of delinquents, with dangerous, substantial consequences. ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ is arguably the seminal coming-of-age film of its era as the US adjusted to post-war life, made all the more poignant by the tragic death of its iconic star shortly after filming.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
