Pollock

Fellow artists and lovers Jackson Pollock (Ed Harris) and Lee Krasner (Marcia Gay Harden) are at the centre 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. Ed Harris makes an impressive directing debut in this enthralling, no-holds-barred biography. Featuring exceptional performances by a stellar cast, including Harris (Oscar nominated for Best Actor), Harden (Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress), Jennifer Connelly, Val Kilmer, John Heard, Jeffrey Tambor and Amy Madigan as Peggy Guggenheim.
