Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean (2012), is a  gorgeous biopic which depicts the years before James Dean (played by James Preston, a former Abercrombie & Fitch model) became a cinema idol, imagining his affair with an unnamed male roommate and other men and women in his life.

It’s a very queer (in both content and gaze) and poetic portrait of young man willing to compromise to meet his ambitions (“if they want me, they’re gonna have to pay”).

Find it and watch it, you won’t regret it.
