Nashville on dual format in May from Masters of Cinema

27 March 2014

Eureka! Entertainment have announced the release of Nashville, voted among the 100 greatest American films ever made by the American Film Institute and Oscar-nominated for Best Picture in 1975. This is the first-ever UK home video release of this iconic masterpiece, directed by Robert Altman (Gosford Park, McCabe and Mrs Miller, The Long Goodbye and The Player).

A milestone in American cinema and of the key films of the 1970s, Robert Altman’s Nashville is one of the most influential and dazzling films ever made. Weaving together the stories and interactions of twenty-four major characters with astonishing fluidity, this audacious, epic vision of America circa 1975 has lost none of its freshness or excitement.

Taking place over five days in the nation’s music capital Nashville, Tennessee, the film follows two-dozen characters struggling for fulfilment, both personal and professional, amongst a backdrop of country and gospel musicians, outsider political campaigning, and the peripheries of life in between, building from one encounter at a time to create a wide-ranging tapestry of rich drama and human comedy.

Featuring an exhilarating central vein of musical performances (written in character by many of the actors themselves), and a phenomenal cast including Ned Beatty, Karen Black, Keith Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Shelley Duvall, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Murphy and Lily Tomlin.

Nashville will be released on UK dual format (DVD and Blu-ray) – its first ever UK home video release – on 26th May 2014 by Eureka! as part of the Masters of Cinema series.

Extra features will include:

  • Interviews

  • Commentary with director Robert Altman

  • 26-page booklet with a new essay, vintage stills, and more
