Directed by and starring Ed Harris in the title role, Pollock (2000) tells the story of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock (1912-1956), who lived with his brother Sande (Robert Knott) in a small apartment in New York City in 1941. His life was chaotic and blurred by alcohol, but he had occasional shows. Into his life comes Lee Krasner (Maria Grace Harden), who became his companion, supporter, wife, not to mention caretaker. Lee brings the struggling artist to the Hamptons where he finally achieves a breakthrough in his painting technique. Despite critical acclaim and a featured story in Life magazine in the late 1940s, Pollock’s artistic success and his life come to a tragic end. Harder won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Harris was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Rome. Please join us for our third in a series of five motion pictures dedicated to the fascinating lives of modern artists.
