This biopic captures a seminal moment in the careers two Americans — one a photographer, the other an actor — who were unknown at the time, but later went on to bigger and better things.

The photographer was Dennis Stock, and the actor was James Dean. In 1955, they hooked up for a Life magazine shoot that took them on a road trip across the U.S.
