Following 24 unique characters through 5 days in the country music capital, Robert Altman’s Oscar winning epic presents a complexly textured portrayal (and critique) of America’s obsession with celebrity and power.

An essential of 70s cinema, this newly remastered Blu-ray, from a 4K film scan of the original elements, looks better than ever.
