Coming of Age, Drama




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. One of the first films to explore teenage issues in such a compelling manner, this classic 1950s film has developed a cult status.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
