Plot: FIVE EASY PIECES is one of the most notable collaborations between Jack Nicholson and director Bob Rafelson, giving Nicholson an outstanding performance as Bobby Dupea. In the film, Rafelson and Nicholson capture the difficult, awkward life of a gifted man who hasn't discovered a way to fully express his talent or found his place in the world--and maybe never will.

Bobby (Jack Nicholson) is a classic misfit--disillusioned about being a musician, unhappy as an oil rigger, and unable to make a commitment to his girlfriend, Rayette, who hopes for marriage. When he visits his family home on the Puget Sound after a long absence, things don't get better. Bobby hates the repressive atmosphere; his brother is unbearable, his father cannot speak, and his sister is involved with his father's supercilious male nurse. When he sets his sights on his brother's fiancée, Catherine Van Ost (movingly played by the beautiful Susan Anspach), things seem to be getting better--that is, until Rayette arrives and Bobby realizes he is caught in a collision between his two lives.
