Robert Altman’s 1975 masterpiece, shot on location in country music’s capital, re-released by BFI Distribution in a glorious 4K restoration.
With an Oscar-winning song and BAFTA-winning soundtrack, critically acclaimed and highly influential, Nashville stars a huge ensemble cast of well-known faces playing 24 main characters.
A magnum opus offering a sceptical commentary on modern America, Nashville follows a host of colourful characters – musicians, agents, fans, journalists, politicians, locals – over a five-day period in the city’s musical calendar. The narrative, seemingly as chaotic as reality, is supremely subtle and complex in its interweaving of events, relationships, themes and moods; the tone is at once affectionate and scathing; the songs are musically spot-on; the film’s sheer scale, ambition, wit and intelligence are exhilarating.
