ALTMAN IN THE ’70S
40th Anniversary! Book Signing with Kathryn Altman!
NASHVILLE

Introduction by Kathryn Altman, who will sign her book Altman in the lobby at 6:30 PM.

NASHVILLE
1975, Paramount, 159 min, USA, Dir: Robert Altman

One of Robert Altman’s greatest pictures is this sprawling, nearly-out-of-control mosaic of a movie, a loosely linked series of sagas following numerous colorful characters in Nashville on the occasion of a political convention and a music festival. Somehow, as if by magic (and aided by Joan Tewkesbury’s script), Altman pulls together all the seemingly disparate threads, making everything cohere in a funny, sad, poignant and exhilarating totality. The cast includes Karen Black, Ronee Blakely, Lily Tomlin, Shelley Duvall, Keith Carradine, Ned Beatty, Barbara Baxley, Gwen Welles, Henry Gibson, Robert Doqui, Allen Garfield and more Oscar-nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actresses (both Tomlin and Blakely). Carradine received an Oscar for Best Original Song, "I’m Easy."
