An often riveting and deeply moving portrayal, the film examines his early career as a commercial artist in the 1940s, where he produced his renowned silkscreen pop paintings (including the famous "Campbell Soup cans") and his iconic "repetitive" celebrity portraits-an artistic expression that would launch him directly into the world he so desperately craved.
