Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) (SC)
Release Date: August 17, 2004.
"Full of funny malice and breakneck vitality. Absorbing and intelligent. Pauline Kael, The New Yorker.
In her remarkable portrayal that won her the 1974 Best Actress Academy Award, Ellen Burstyn stars as widow Alice Hyatt, traveling in a packed station wagon with her son along a bumpy road to a new life. With Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, director Martin Scorsese is as much at home in the semi-rural Southwest as he is in the urban environs of his signature movies. He guides the "live a little, learn a lot" of Alice's odyssey with affection unmarred by sentiment and draws pitch-perfect performances from co-stars Kris Kristofferson, Alfred Lutter, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Vie Tayback and Oscar nominee Diane Ladd. It's a slice of life as real, funny and thought-provoking as any you've ever seen. Or lived. -- (C) Warner Bros, 1974, USA.
