Jack Nicholson's breakout performance is this exceptional drama that follows a young man who sets out on a journey across the States to see his dying father. Rafelson and Nicholson present a portrait of a new generation: stubborn, emasculated, anxious, and opinionated, and above all, one that finds it difficult to find its footing in the face of the changes of time and the culture that it creates. Five Easy Pieces is charged with a tough energy and bitter melancholy, and at its heart stands Nicholson's astonishing and stirring performance.
