A talented young artist goes to art school, only to find he may not be as good as he thinks. When he finds the girl of his dreams, he must concoct a plan to win her from the star of the school, as well as make a name for himself.
Art School Confidential follows a talented young artist Jerome Platz (Minghella) as he escapes from high school to a tiny East Coast art school. Here the boyish freshman's ambition is to become the world's greatest artist, like his hero Picasso. Unfortunately, the beauty and craft of Jerome's portraiture are not appreciated in an anything-goes art class that he finds bewildering and bogus. Neither his harsh judgments of his classmates' efforts or his later attempts to create pseudo-art of his own win him any admirers. But Jerome does attract the attentions of his dream girl -- the stunning and sophisticated Audrey (Myles) -- an artist's model and daughter of a celebrated artist. Rejecting the affectations of the local art scene, Audrey is drawn to Jerome's sincerity. When Audrey shifts her attentions to Jonah (Matt Keeslar), a hunky painter who becomes the school's latest art star, Jerome is heartbroken. Desperate, he concocts a risky plan to make a name for himself and win her back. Filling out Jerome's world are a host of offbeat characters, including: a quirky art teacher (Malkovich) who takes an extra-curricular interest in Jerome; a failed artist (Broadbent), drowning in alcohol and self-pity; a regal art history professor (Huston) Jerome tries to influence; a coffee shop owner-cum-art impresario (Buscemi) swelling with self-importance; a worldly classmate (Moore), who introduces Jerome in the intricate mores of campus life; and Jerome's filmmaker roommate (Suplee), exploding with energy to create a cinematic masterpiece.
