ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE
Ellen Burstyn, Kris Kristofferson
Warner Bros.; Directed by Martin Scorsese
Rated PG; 112 minutes; 1974
With compassionate and disarming realism, this wry comedy drama follows the difficult odyssey of Alice as she struggles to build a new life; widowed, with a 12-year-old son, no job, and no money. Ellen Burstyn's performance soars in an ever-ascending spiral to new heights of artistry in this poignant film that makes no apologies for being remarkably humanistic.
Acclaimed director Martin Scorsese presents your students one woman’s dramatic story.
