American painter Jackson Pollock (Ed Harris) is the subject of this biography, which doesn't hesitate to illustrate his degrading personal life. But the film shows how Pollock's energetic and creative work of splashing paint on canvas resulted in his rise to fame as an abstract artist. Marcia Gay Harden won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in her role as Pollock's long-suffering wife and caretaker. Ed Harris was nominated for Best Actor.
