Splendor in the Grass


Splendor in the Grass Review

You only get one chance to see the words "and introducing Warren Beatty," and that's in Splendor in the Grass, Elia Kazan's sprawling love story about tortured teens (Natalie Wood and Beatty) who drift together and apart and together and apart through the 1920s and 1930s. This flip-side of Rebel Without a Cause is really Wood's movie altogether, though a really down and droll last act weakens her emotional tour de force in the first half substantially. Watchable but not great.
