Robert Pattinson (The Rover, Maps To The Stars), Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Ben Kingsley (Sexy Beast, Enders Game) and Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty) star in the true-life drama "Life", directed by Anton Corbijn (Control, A Most Wanted Man).
In 1955, fledgling photographer Dennis Stock (Pattinson) convinces the young and up-and-coming actor James Dean (DeHaan) to allow him to shoot him for an article in Life Magazine. Together the two take a trip from LA to Dean’s hometown of Fairmont, Indiana via New York so that Stock can capture Dean in all the environments that had affected and shaped his unique character.
While Stock thinks he’s capturing a star in the moment before his meteoric rise, it gradually becomes clear that he’s actually documenting Dean’s final moments of intimacy and simplicity weeks before his untimely death, creating the photos that will eventually turn him into an icon.
"Life" is an incredible take on the true story of the final weeks of the actor who lived just long enough to change the culture of a generation - and the effect on the man who documented him.
