Nashville (1975)

Directed by
Robert Altman

Filmmaker Robert Altman’s exhilarating masterpiece cuts a cross-section through the musical community of mid-1970s Nashville, illuminating the foibles of country music’s jet set and the blind ambition of hopeless nobodies struggling to break in. Schisms form when a visiting team of political handlers cynically woos singers to support their candidate at a political rally. Rousing music and myriad, intertwined plot lines render Nashville a masterful assessment of the human comedy.
