Don’t miss the chance to see the late great Robert Altman’s amazing ensemble piece, in a brand new 4K Ultra HD restoration at Cinestudio! Shot during in the middle of Nixon’s Watergate hearings and resignation, Nashville is a masterpiece that brings together politics, music, sly cultural satire, and personal journeys of tenderness and loss. Set in the shiny ‘New South’ in the run-up to a Presidential primary, it weaves together some 25 characters en route to a political rally in the epicenter of country music. Some of the most memorable characters are Ronee Blakely as a fragile country star, Lily Tomlin as a woman raising two deaf sons, Keith Carradine as a seductive musician, and Ned Beatty as a slick political operative.
“We’re all in this together. That’s the message I get at the end of Nashville, and it has never failed to move me.” Roger Ebert, from Great Movies.
