Edward Hopper

UK, 1981 (MIFF 1982)

Director: Ron Peck

A search for the real Edward Hopper, taking in the main locations he painted in Nyack. New York State, New York City and Truro, Cape Cod. But the search becomes concentrated on the paintings, the bars, hotel rooms and offices, which adds up to a particular view of modern city life.
