Well-known actor, director, screenwriter, producer, teacher and author, James Franco directs this bio-pic about 1950s teen idol Sal Mineo during his final days – he was murdered at 37. At one time considered a promising young actor for his roles in Rebel Without a Cause, Giant, and Exodus, the story picks up his life almost two decades later, when Mineo is no longer a marquee sensation, but hopeful about getting back on track. Mineo was one of the first actors to come out about his homosexuality. This indie film finds the human details in a larger-than-life Hollywood story.
