"Five Easy Pieces, a brilliant gem of American psychological realism (where are these movies today?), is Nicholson's arrival to the A-list." - Time Out New York
Screening in tribute to Karen Black who died earlier this month, Five Easy Pieces is one of the essential films of the 1970s New Hollywood. A classic of the 'Easy Riders, Raging Bulls' era.
Jack Nicholson plays an upper-class drop-out who's rejected a promising career as a concert pianist for work on oil rigs and an itinerent life of dive bars, motels and diners.
When he learns that his father isn't well he takes his waitress girlfriend (Black) to the family home in Washington. Cue a culture-clash confrontation.
