Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan team up on the big screen in Anton Corbijn's "Life," hitting theaters on Friday. In the film, Pattinson plays LIFE magazine photographer Dennis Stock as he forms a friendship with James Dean (DeHaan) while on assignment to shoot the rising star in 1955. The pair went on a photographic journey across the United States, from Los Angeles to New York, unknowingly documenting the last moments of intimacy and simplicity that James Dean ever knew.
In a clip exclusive to The Huffington Post, Stock takes his son, Rodney (Jack Fulton), to the park. Though he was able to connect with Dean on such a personal level, this scene shows Stock's lack of experience as a father and his inability to connect with his child.
"A lot of what I was interested in was nothing to do with James Dean, or fame, or anything like that," Pattinson told the Brisbane Times of playing Stock. "[My character] is a really bad dad. And you don’t really see that in young guy parts. He just doesn’t love his kid, or is incapable of it, and it kind of pains him.’’
"Life" hits U.S. theaters and Digital and Video On Demand on Dec. 4, from Cinedigm.
