Directed by and starring Best Actor Oscar-nominee Ed Harris, Pollock is an intense, beautifully-crafted drama about the legendary American painter, Jackson Pollock. Fellow artists and lovers, Jackson Pollock (Harris) and Lee Krasner (Best Supporting Actress Oscar-winner Marcia Gay Harden) are at the center of New York’s 1940s art scene, but as Krasner neglects her work to push Pollock’s career forward, Pollock begins to unravel emotionally. Pollock and Krasner escape to the country and marry and, soon, Pollock creates work that makes him the first internationally-famous modern painter in America. But, with fame and fortune, comes a volatile temper and severe self-doubt; before long, Pollock’s life threatens to explode. Featuring a stellar supporting cast, including Amy Madigan, Val Kilmer and Jennifer Connelly.

(Dir. by Ed Harris, 2000, USA, 122 mins., Rated R)
