Sometimes you can't tell who's good and who's bad...

In the Salinas Valley in and around World War I, Cal Trask feels he must compete against overwhelming odds with his brother for the love of their father. Cal is frustrated at every turn, from his reaction to the war, how to get ahead in business and in life, and how to relate to his estranged mother.

Un bon film, oui, une interprétation de James Dean sans faute et originale, mais le film ne raconte qu'une seule des trois parties du livre et ne se concentre que sur la relation entre les deux frères et entre Cal et son père, passant sous silence tellement de choses essentielles racontées dans le livre, que le film perd en substance et en profondeur. Assez déçu au final.
