Perhaps the finest film of the ‘70s, this sprawling epic takes place in the days leading up to a political rally in Nashville. The film’s rich tapestry includes an astonishing cast (Shelley Duvall, Alan Arkin, Karen Black, Keith Carradine, and Jeff Goldblum to name a few) and reflects the intersection of celebrity, place, politics, and culture.
“Altman’s great kaleidoscopic ensemble comedy-drama about a frenzied few days in country music’s capital, with an unlikely, quirky, explosive crowd of musicians, hangers-on and politicos all converging on a fateful concert crossroads.” – Chicago Tribune
