BY ELIA KAZAN

EAST OF EDEN


1917. A wilful young man contends against his brother for the attention of their religious father while reconnecting with his estranged mother and falling for his brother’s girlfriend. The story is based on the Abel and Cain myth, from The Bible.

A best-seller, a director at the peak of his career, and a shining star : that’s what makes East of Eden an incredibly modern masterpiece.
