Bobby Dupea (Jack Nicholson) lives in Kern County, California with his girlfriend Rayette (Karen Black). Both work in menial labour, but Bobby secretly comes from wealth and is a classically trained pianist. When Bobby learns his father his sick, he and Rayette travel to Washington, where Bobby is forced to reconcile his background with the man he’s become – and the man he wants to be. Nominated for four Academy Awards, Five Easy Pieces also solidified Jack Nicholson’s star persona.
A very modern film. Elliptical, absurdist, harshly humorous, convulsively lyrical.Village Voice
If the function of art is to help an audience feel less alone, then Five Easy Pieces succeeds beautifully. –San Francisco Chronicle
