Summary

Summary

Drama / Characters: 1 male, 8 female

Scenery: Interior

In a small town dime store in West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flash backs to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning but familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.

"Full of home spun humor and] ... surefire comic gems."-NY Post

"Captures convincingly the atmosphere of the 1950s."-W.W.D.
