Nashville Rated 15


Dir. Robert Altman. USA, 1975. 2h 40m. Starring Keith Carradine, Karen Black, Shelley Duvall, Ronee Blakley, David Arkin, Barbara Baxley, Timothy Brown.

A magnum opus offering a sceptical commentary on modern America, Nashville follows a host of intriguingly colourful characters – musicians, agents, fans, journalists, politicians, locals – over five days in the city’s busy concert schedule. Set in country music’s capital as America approached its bicentennial, Robert Altman’s 1970s masterpiece has been gloriously restored in 4K.

‘Compared with the carbonated, artificially-flavoured, genetically-modified pap that mainstream cinema dishes up, Robert Altman's Nashville now tastes like a crisp organic apple.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Nashville looks forward to our contemporary obsession with celebrities and to politics itself becoming a form of show business. Unmissable.’ ★★★★★ Tom Dawson, BBC
