Storyline

Based on the novel by Kurt Vonnegut, Bluebeard is the fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, a one-eyed former artist of the Abstract Expressionist era. Rabo is a self-proclaimed failure and simply wants to fade out alone on his Long Island estate with the big secret he has locked inside his potato barn. But then a gorgeous young widow, Circe Berman, with a secret of her own, invites herself into his life and goads Rabo into telling his life story. Moving back and forth from pre-WWII to the present (late 1980's), we learn of Rabo's colossal folly and successes as he grapples with a young romance, failed marriage, estranged sons, and the fiasco of the non-inferior latex paint, Sateen Dura Luxe that caused his paintings to disintegrate. But what's in that potato barn?
