Fans of the legendary icon James Dean will probably love the film “A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951,” coming out June 4 on DVD. The film, distributed by Wolfe Video, shows the life of Dean when he was an up-and-coming actor in the early 1950s. Here’s more about “A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951″:

Set primarily in the early 1950s and focusing on James Dean’s experiences as an up-and-coming actor in Los Angeles, Writer/Director Matthew Mishory’s “A Portrait of James Dean: Joshua Tree, 1951″ is a series of revealing and sometimes dreamlike vignettes that blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in a remarkable life. Shot in gorgeous 35mm black and white punctuated by bursts of color, the film stars James Preston (TV’s ‘The Gates’) in the title role, with Dan Glenn (TV’s ‘Pushing Daisies’), debutante Dalilah Rain, Edward Singletary, Jr. (‘Palo Alto’), Robert Gant (TV’s ‘Queer as Folk’) and Erin Daniels (‘The L Word,’ ‘A Single Man’) rounding out the cast in an intimate portrait of James Dean as he is on the cusp of achieving notoriety as both a great actor and an American icon. Bonus features include Matthew Mishory’s award winning short film Delphinium: A Childhood Portrait of Derek Jarman, a stylized and lyrical coming-of-age portrait of Derek Jarman’s artistic, sexual, and political awakening in post-War England.
