It is a touching drama which doesn't succeed in being exciting.Elia Kazan,a brilliant director,creates a diamond from the novel of an amazing author John Steinbeck and manages to enter the world of the heroes in a unique way.The performances are unforgettable,however stands the legendary James Dean, who with this film debut was established as a star.

James Dean is a real legend, even though he has made only 3 movies (in fact, he has made actually other movies but with a very small part). So, I was really curious to see those flicks to finally find out if the guy was actually any good. This movie was the first of his that I have seen and I have to say I was indeed really impressed. Honestly, even though the directing was really good, I thought ... read more

" Quote: The first two, I'm gonna go with Elia Kazan, 'cause they're really the reason why I became an actor in movies. East of Eden, with James Dean, and A Streetcar Named Desire, with Vivien Leigh and Marlon Brando. The performance by James Dean -- the scene specifically where he tries to give his father, played by Raymond Massey, the money from selling the beans on his birthday, and he's rejected -- it broke my heart; it was not like anything I'd experienced before, in terms of art, and I'd s"

Awesome interprets his role as the failed son who is only asking for love from his father and manages to we love his character.This movie is imposed to anyone who loves the cinema .

A great classic

“James Dean is a real legend, even though he has made only 3 movies (in fact, he has made actually other movies but with a very small part). So, I was really curious to see those flicks to finally find out if the guy was actually any good. This movie was the first of his that I have seen and I have to say I was indeed really impressed. Honestly, even though the directing was really good, I thought that the story tended to get a little bit overdramatic but the performances, especially by James Dean, were nothing short of amazing and, as a result, the movie was just spellbinding to watch. It does help that this movie was an adaptation of a classic book written by John Steinbeck. Later on, I have also watched ‘Rebel without a cause’ and even though it was indeed pretty good, it was hardly ” read more

Morrissey's influences (120 movies items)

" In a private letter to penpal Robert Mackie from 1981 (since leaked to fans and on the internet), Morrissey wrote "'East Of Eden' is a wonderful film. My ambition is to track down Richard Davalos (who played Aron, the angelic brother) and interview him". A photo of actor Richard Davalos taken during the filming of this movie was used for the artwork of the Smiths' "Strangeways Here We Come" album. James Dean utters the question "Can you look at the truth?" in "East Of Eden", a tenuous conn"

"An older film, but that won't be a problem with Mike and Kyle. This seems to be a very interesting film and I'll hopefully get the chance to watch it regardless of whether or not it makes Mike cry. Anyways! It's a John Steinbeck story! If that doesn't make you feel like dying, nothing will. The Results: Pending. "
