KANSAS CITY

Robert Altman, USA, 1996, Arrow Films, Arthouse

“Robert Altman’s hypnotic riff on his hell-raising, crime-ridden Missouri hometown during the Depression is brimming over with vibrant, vital music.”
— Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

Blondie O’Hara (Jennifer Jason Leigh, THE HATEFUL EIGHT) resorts to desperate measures when her low-level hood husband Johnny (Dermot Mulroney) gets caught trying to steal from Seldom Seen (Harry Belafonte), a local crime boss operating out of jazz haunt The Hey-Hey Club. Out on a limb, Blondie kidnaps laudanum-addled socialite Carolyn (Miranda Richardson), hoping her influential politician husband can pull the right strings and get Johnny out of Seldom Seen’s clutches. Returning to the city of his birth for inspiration, legendary director Robert Altman (NASHVILLE) helms an evocative, bullet-riddled tribute to the music and movies of his youth in a Depression-era gangster film as only he could make.
