Life (2015)

Dir: Anton Corbijn

Canada | USA | Australia




From Anton Corbijn, photographer and director of the acclaimed Ian Curtis biopic Control (2007), comes Life, which premiered at the Berlinale this year and focuses on the friendship between Stock, a photographer for Life magazine (played by Robert Pattinson – Maps to the Stars) and a young rising star: James Dean (Dane DeHaan – Kill Your Darlings).

Hard-working, Los Angeles-based Stock is disillusioned by his job photographing celebrities at premieres and parties – and dreams of becoming an artist. Meeting the odd, aloof Jimmy Dean – who’s up for a role in Nicholas Ray’s latest – at a party one night, he’s immediately fascinated by him, and wants to collaborate.

Heading to New York together, they suffer struggles in their respective careers; Dean facing pressure from studio head Jack Warner (Ben Kingsley) and Stock lacking inspiration. But then – just before the premiere of East of Eden – they escape to Dean’s Indiana hometown, where the magic starts to happen.
