Unfortunately, they must also learn to live with the Bettermans -- a family that's a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. As tensions between the new neighbours start to rise, a new threat soon propels both clans on an epic adventure that forces them to embrace their differences, draw strength from one another, and survive together.

Nashville
Robert Altman | USA | 1975 | 160m | 15 


Robert Altman’s 1975 masterpiece NASHVILLE, shot on location in country music’s capital, has re-released by BFI Distribution for selected cinemas UK-wide from 25 June in a glorious 4K restoration, screening for the very first time in the UK.


With an Oscar-winning song and BAFTA-winning soundtrack, critically acclaimed and highly influential, NASHVILLE stars a huge ensemble cast of well-known faces playing 24 main characters, including Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Karen Black, Shelley Duval, Ronee Blakley, Henry Gibson, Barbara Harris, Michael Murphy, and Ned Beatty.


A magnum opus offering a sceptical commentary on modern America, NASHVILLE follows a host of colourful characters – musicians, agents, fans, journalists, politicians, locals – over a five-day period in the city’s musical calendar. The narrative, seemingly as chaotic as reality, is supremely subtle and complex in its interweaving of events, relationships, themes, and moods; the tone is at once affectionate and scathing; the songs are musically spot-on; the film’s sheer scale, ambition, wit and intelligence are exhilarating.
