East of Eden

Opens Friday, Apr 18, 2014 Synopsis: This truncated screen version of John Steinbeck's best-seller was the first starring vehicle for explosive 1950s screen personality James Dean, who plays Cal Trask, the "bad" son of taciturn Salinas valley lettuce farmer Adam Trask (Raymond Massey). Although he means well, Cal can't stay out of trouble, nor is he able to match the esteem in which his father holds his "good" brother Aron (Richard Davalos). Only Aron's girlfriend Abra (Julie Harris) and kindly old sheriff Sam Burl Ives) can see the essential goodness in the troublesome Cal. When Adam invests in a chancy and wholly unsuccessful method of shipping his crops east, his wealth plummets. In an effort to save the business, Cal obtains money from his estranged mother (the proprietor of a whorehouse) and invests it in a risky new bean crop. The gamble pays off (thanks in no small part to the war), but Adam refuses to take the money from Cal, and the resultant quarrel causes Adam to have a stroke. Released the same year as Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden provided Dean with his first Oscar nomination, for Best Actor. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Julie Harris, James Dean, Raymond Massey, Burl Ives, Dick Davalos, Jo Van Fleet Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Sometimes good guys finish last

Flight

Synopsis: Although based on a story about a young, unintentional killer by John Steinbeck, Flight's main credits are its musical score and scenic views of southern California's Big Sur. The year is 1900 or so, and Pepo (Efraín Ramírez) lives in crushing poverty, like many other Mexican-Americans in and around Monterey. But Pepo has the further misfortune of fighting it out with a drunk in a bar, getting injured in the process, and killing his woozy adversary. The young Hispanic takes off for the hill country outside the city with the law and an ill-defined lynch mob in hot pursuit. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi Cast: Efraim Ramirez, Esther Cortez, Maria Gonzales, Andrew Cortez Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
