Expert Review Splendor in the Grass - DVD Review
By: Don Willmott DVD Reviews
Published on: 1/23/2009 7:46 PM
At a time when frank discussions of sexual longing were pretty much frowned upon in the world of entertainment, director Elia Kazan was never squeamish about putting the heat on the screen in films like Baby Doll, A Streetcar Named Desire, and, perhaps most notoriously, Splendor in the Grass. This soapy and steamy melodrama earns its place in movie history for giving us two great performances by two young and beautiful actors, Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty, whose teenage lust leads literally to the full review

Plot Summary
Set in rural Kansas, "Splendor in the Grass" tells the tragically romantic tale of teenagers Deanie and Bud who repress their desires because of their families' disapproval. Coming from radically different backgrounds -- one wealthy, the other staunchly puritanical -- they allow class differences to prevent any possible union. Their passions exist purely in their hearts and minds, but the couple never physically or socially express this forbidden love. Later in life, Deanie is institutionalized following a breakdown, and she eventually returns home to resolve her feelings about Bud.

Entertainment Weekly
"...Here was innocence, here was sexual power, here was the Casanova who would, over time, be[come Warren Beatty]..." -- Rating: B 04/07/1995 p.102

3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] landmark in Hollywood melodrama, standing squarely between elegantly overwrought classical studio style and the fresh, intimate immediacy of French New Wave." 03/01/2009
