  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    Cette merveilleuse histoire d'un amour impossible, entre la fuite du temps et la pression sociale et parentale, reste un incomparable et inoubliable moment de cinéma dont on retiendra aussi l'excellence et la pertinence de l'interprétation de l'ensemble des acteurs principaux mais aussi, il faut le noter, secondaires... www.cinefiches.com

  6. SpacePirate's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    Another masterstroke by Kazan. Wood gives a career defining performance here, and Beatty shines in his debut. All the accolades have already been said over and over about this one, but damn if they arent all correct. Beyond essential. A great film by one of the true auteurs of cinema.

  11. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    I was so heartbroken by this, isn't it wonderful? Could be an essay on gender roles and it exposes quite well the pressure imposed on women nowadays, oh excuse me, in the 20s. my mistake.

  12. Genre films > French New Wave's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    The first "basic bitch and basic bro" love story! Oh well. As usual, Kazan brings a level of honesty to this innocent story and isn't afraid to go to dark places. I admire how he focused more on Natalie Wood, although one could argue all sorts of "Oh, what is she without her man?!" feminist stuff. I do never get over these kinds of endings though. Also, Beatty is the most inarticulate actor since James Dean.

  15. conspiracy's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    Absolutely pure, beauty itself. Even though one would hardly recognize masterpiece in relationship between common people of Kansas, still magnificence could be found in the glory of youth so greatly captured in this film. Fake morality of those years keeps naive and whimsical Deanie away from Bud. She was just afraid of being spoiled.

  16. Umberto L.'s rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    "Though nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendour in the grass, / of glory in the flower, / We will grieve not, rather find / Strength in what remains behind": a perfect description of the current situation of the American Cinema.

    Colorful brilliant emotional epic coming of age. An Elia Kazan masterpiece!

  22. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    On the eve of the stock market crash, a middle class high school girl sets her hopes on the local oil millionaire's son and has a mental breakdown because her mother has trained her to maintain her virginity. Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty perform beautifully, and his seduction by the school harlot beneath the waterfall is another thing of great beauty. Kazan said this film was a favorite of his, especially the end.

  23. Anna's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    sooooooooooo upsetting

  24. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Splendor in the Grass

    Natalie Wood is such maniac dream in this! The way she looks to the edge and jumps off in her performance could make Joan Crawford blush! Here we have a psychosexual melodrama that delivers a desperately sad love story that predates Degrassi making tawdry teen drama an actual thing. Love affects in many blind ways. Especially when social status and mental health (synonymous to together) are in the way.
