This film originally premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival but is only now being released.  

James Franco’s "Sal" chronicles the final day in the life of actor Sal Mineo (Val Lauren), 1950s teen idol and an Academy Award nominee for his roles in "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Exodus". Almost two decades later, Mineo is no longer the marquee sensation he had once been — but he has become open about his homosexuality and is finding his way to becoming the actor and director he has always wanted to be. Featuring a magnetic performance by Lauren, Franco’s intimate portrait finds the human details in a larger-than-life Hollywood story.
