Five Easy PiecesI'm sorry it didn't work out.
Bobby Eroica Dupea (Jack Nicholson) leads a blue-collar life as an oil rigger, living with needy waitress girlfriend Rayette (Karen Black). He used to be a talented musician, raised in a musical family. Bobby is as much of a misfit among the common community as he is among the musical atmosphere of his family.
He learns from his sister (Lois Smith) that his father had a stroke, and agrees to see his father one last time. Bobby must rejoin his family but he finds the same boring, elite upper-class atmosphere he left years before. After trying to reconcile with his mute father, Bobby departs, unwilling to give in to either destiny.
