Lead actor and first-time director Ed Harris spent six years bringing the story of the famed Abstract Expressionist artist Jackson Pollock to the screen. His labor of love reflects the triumphs and tribulations of a creative life, while addressing issues of alcoholism, fame, masculinity, love, and infidelity. Based on the book Jackson Pollock: An American Saga by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, the film earned many honors, including an Oscar® for Best Actress in a Supporting Role by Marcia Gay Harden for her moving portrayal of Pollock’s wife, artist Lee Krasner.
