June Film Discussion: Nashville

Nashville, the 1975 film directed by Robert Altman, depicts the country music and gospel music businesses in Nashville, Tennessee and combines them with material on U.S. presidential politics. The film weaves together multiple storylines that eventually coalesce in the final half-hour in a climactic sequence at the Parthenon in Nashville. Among its many musical sequences, the song "It Don't Worry Me" is the film's theme, heard sporadically throughout and then performed at the climax.

The film features a large ensemble cast including David Arkin, Barbara Baxley, Ned Beatty, Karen Black, Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Shelley Duvall, Allen Garfield, Henry Gibson, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, Elliott Gould, Barbara Harris, David Hayward, Michael Murphy, Cristina Raines, Lily Tomlin, Gwen Welles and Keenan Wynn.

See you all on Wednesday, June 6th at 7:00pm!
