NASHVILLE 4K

Robert Altman

One of the legendary Robert Altman’s greatest films receives a welcome reissue in a 4K digital restoration. Nashville is typically sprawling and ambitiously complex, following 24 characters in the titular city over the course of the five days leading up to a major gala concert-cum-political rally. Among the strands followed are those of politically ambitious country star Haven Hamilton (Henry Gibson) and his partner, nightclub owner Lady Pearl (Barbara Baxley), singing rivals Barbara Jean (Ronee Blakely) and Connie White (Karen Black), and Sueleen Gay (Gwen Welles), a naïve wannabe ripe for exploitation. With an all-star cast, and taking full advantage of its setting and its liberal use of country music, Altman’s loose approach to filmmaking resulted in a masterpiece.
