James Dean: Forever Young is the visual story of the last five years in the life of James Dean, a young actor on his search for stardom. This documentary, released by Warner Bros. in 2005 to mark the 50th anniversary of Dean's death at the age of 24, had its world premiere at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.
Narrated by Martin Sheen, James Dean: Forever Young is a feature-length documentary like no other. The film includes no "talking heads." The documentary is wall-to-wall James Dean. It's a visual treat, a chronological retelling of Dean's life from the moment he left his family farm in Indiana on a train headed West until his untimely death a mere five years later in his beloved Porsche 550 Spyder, which he had affectionately nicknamed "Little Bastard."
James Dean: Forever Young is a unique motion picture. Any fan of James Dean will appreciate the perspective that the documentary offers as it presents an intimate look at one of the most compelling young actors of all time.
