Directed by and starring Ed Harris, Pollock is a beautifully crafted drama about the legendary American painter Jackson Pollock. Fellow artists and lovers Pollock and Lee Krasner (Marcia Gay Harden, in an Oscar-winning performance) are at the centre of New York’s 1940s art scene, but as Krasner neglects her work to push Pollock’s career forward, Pollock begins to unravel emotionally.
Art & Love: Our Summer Mini Film Festival
Why not combine your visit to the international exhibition, My Friend Picasso: 125 photographs by Edward Quinn with a FREE movie in Castletown. Each Saturday afternoon in July, from the 7th to the 21st, we will be screening a film dedicated to three iconic artists of the twentieth century: Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo and Jackson Pollock. Each of them broke the mould in a different way, each one suffered for their art – and for love. Showing both their artistic struggle and their fascinating personal lives, the films we present to you capture the passion and the conflict out of which great art was born and introduce you to the artists’ companions – Françoise Gilot, Diego Rivera and Lee Kranser – who were acclaimed painters in their own right. Immerse yourself in their stories within the serene surroundings of Ireland’s greatest country home!
