ARROW ACADEMY

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: Kansas City (Blu-ray)

Release date: March 2, 2020

Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and featuring a remarkable soundtrack, one of Altman’s most underrated and idiosyncratic films finally makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut

"Returning to the city of his birth for inspiration, legendary maverick director Robert Altman helms an evocative, bullet-riddled tribute to the music and movies of his youth in Kansas City, a Depression-era gangster flick as only he could make one.

Blondie O’Hara (Jennifer Jason Leigh) 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."
