Take a trip with Jack Nicholson in Five Easy Pieces on Friday, September 2, at 2 p.m.
Existential angst marks this 1970 road tale in which Robert Dupea (Jack Nicholson) gives up his promising career as a concert pianist, hits the road and finds work in the oil fields of Los Angeles.
While living with diner waitress, Rayette (Karen Black), Robert's sister tells him that his father is ill. He and Rayette return to his family home on Puget Sound for a visit, where he confronts the culture clash between the rich, cultured family that he left behind, and his new working class life (Rated R - adult content).
