Steinbeck's contemporary retelling of the biblical Cain and Abel story receives superior treatment from Kazan and his excellent cast. Dean, in his first starring role, gives a reading of a young man's search for love and acceptance that defines adolescent pain. Though filmed in the 1950s, this story still rivets today's viewers with its emotional message.
It was kind of weird. The atmosphere and the charactors in the movie were unlike any I have ever seen. It had an odd feeling and the story line was kind of really unlikly. I dont think I liked it all at. Just not right. You know?
