A young Baltimore teen’s hometown photography become the temporary toast of the New York art world!
Pecker is a young man who’s artistically driven to photograph his very strange family (his sister Crissy who compulsively eats sugar, his nutty grandmother with the talking Madonna), his buxom girlfriend, and local colorful Baltimore community. All act as willing muses but when he’s discovered by an art dealer and receives adulation from the upper-echelon of the New York art scene, he’s torn between achieving success as a photographer and exploiting those closest to him. In typical John Waters’ style, Pecker is over-the-top, raunchy, hilarious and full of colorful characters but nothing just shock value, there’s legitimate commentary at play about the fickleness and ridiculousness of the art world. Oh, and Pecker is named after the way he eats…why, what were you thinking?
