A milestone in American cinema and one of the key films of the 1970s, Robert Altman’s Nashville is one of the most influential and dazzling films ever made. Weaving together the stories and interactions of twenty-four major characters with astonishing fluidity, this audacious, epic vision of America circa 1975 has lost none of its freshness or excitement.

Taking place over five days in the nation’s music capital Nashville, Tennessee, the film follows two-dozen characters struggling for fulfilment, both personal and professional, amongst a backdrop of country and gospel musicians, outsider political campaigning, and the peripheries of life inbetween, building from one encounter at a time to create a wide-ranging tapestry of rich drama and human comedy.

Featuring an exhilarating central vein of musical performances (written in character by many of the actors themselves), and a phenomenal cast including Ned Beatty, Karen Black, Keith Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Shelley Duvall, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Murphy, and Lily Tomlin, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this iconic work for the first time ever on home video in the UK.
