Pollock – 2000, 122 minutes

Directed by and starring Academy Award(r) 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. No registration required. Please join us!

Girl With a Pearl Earring is told from the point of view of Griet (Scarlett Johansson), a teenaged girl who leaves her family's care in the country to become a servant for the Vermeer household. She catches the eye of the taciturn, reclusive Vermeer (Colin Firth), and over a period of time, he begins to craft her portrait. Meanwhile, Griet navigates a sweet, tentative relationship with a peasant boy her age (Cillian Murphy). No registration required. Please join us!
