Biopic dramatizes the life and career of painter Jackson Pollock.

Jackson Pollock was one of America's foremost abstract painters, riding a wild wave of artistic success (and failure) to a feature in Life Magazine at the end of the 1940s. Pollock follows the painter's path to renown, starting with turbulent, drink-addled roots in New York City and ending with an untimely death in a car accident at the age of fifty-four.
