Nashville

Released 40 years ago, when the US was still reeling from the Vietnam War and Watergate, this prophetic mosaic reveals America's obsession with entertainment and politics.

Thursday Night at the Movies! Join us, as Thom Ernst, broadcaster and former host of TVO's beloved 'Saturday Night at the Movies,' introduces this American classic for a special 40th anniversary screening.

"In 1975, Robert Altman debuted the crown jewel of his career: a gutsy, broad-scale cinematic portrait of a divided America set within the Country Music Capital of the World. Today, it might just be the greatest American film of all time." - Tribeca Film Festival

"A landmark American film, Altman's breathtakingly assured C&W epic has perhaps exerted an even greater influence on non-Hollywood cinema. Certainly its disdain for the tidy niceties of conventional narrative (it merely follows the mostly none-too-consequential fortunes of 24 musicians, managers, politicians, promoters and punters variously involved in, or connected to, a weekend music festival in Nashville, Tennessee) makes for an unusually illuminating perspective in terms of character, mood and moral insight. But the impressionistic vignettes, coupled with the expert use of overlapping dialogue, also build slowly but surely to create a coherent and persuasive portrait of a society that has somewhere along the way carelessly abandoned its original ideals and turned instead to the false gods of fame, fortune, easy sentiment, self-congratulation and political expediency. A masterpiece." - Time Out

“The funniest epic vision of America ever to reach the screen.” - The New Yorker
