1955 was the year that Anton Corbijn was born, going on to make a name for himself with his portraits of musical stars. Now the director retrieves this date, 1955, and this profession, photographer, to compose a new picture, one of James Dean who just finished shooting East of Eden and of Dennis Stock, the photographer who immortalized him for Life magazine. David Pattinson plays Stock in a beautiful movie-homage, from one photographer to another.
Born in Strijen, Holland, in 1955, Corbijn first shined as a photographer and as a music video director, one of the most brilliant of his generation. He made the big leap to film directing with Control (07).
