Overview
Famed writer/director John Waters (Hairspray, Pink Flamingos) chronicles America's most unlikely superstar photographer, Pecker (Edward Furlong, Terminator 2), a Baltimore teenager who picks up a second-hand camera and starts snapping his way to stardom. Discovered by a savvy New York art dealer, (Lili Taylor, Ransom) Pecker's photographs, which highlight his obsessive girlfriend (Christina Ricci, The Opposite of Sex) and her fascist laudromat, his sister (Martha Plimpton, Beautiful Girls) and her raunchy all-male strip bar and his other "culturally challenged" family members and friends, make him a nationwide sensation. But Pecker soon discovers that instant over-exposure has its downside and he must make a fateful choice between his life and his art.

Boasting a wickedly fun soundtrack, Pecker proves that "John Waters hasn't lost his taste for outrageous humor!" (Stephen Farber, Movieline)
