Synopsis: Directed by and starring Academy Award® nominee (for Best Actor) Ed Harris (The Truman Show, The Rock), POLLOCK is a beautifully-crafted, stunning drama about the legendary American painter, Jackson Pollock. Fellow artists and lovers, Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner 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 exceptional performances by a stellar cast, including Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden (Meet Joe Black, The First Wives Club), Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams, Uncle Buck), Val Kilmer (The Saint, Heat) and Jennifer Connelly (Requiem for a Dream).
