OFS Silver Screenings Presents: 3 WOMEN – 40th Anniversary

OFS Silver Screenings Presents:
40th Anniversary

3 Women is a 1977 American avant-garde drama film written and directed by Robert Altman, and starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek and Janice Rule. It depicts the increasingly bizarre, mysterious relationship between a woman (Duvall) and her roommate and co-worker (Spacek) in a dusty, underpopulated Californian desert town. The story came directly from a dream Altman had, which he adapted into a treatment. The film was screened at the 1977 Cannes Film Festival. It received positive reviews and a few awards, including the Cannes Best Actress Award for Duvall. Interpretation of the film has involved use of psychoanalysis and discussion of identity.
Dir: Robert Altman / 1977 / US / 124 min

“I have seen it many times, been through it twice in shot-by-shot analysis, and yet it always seems to be happening as I watch it. Recurring dreams are like that.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A spectacular artistic success.” – Douglas Pratt, Hollywood Reporter

“The result is remarkable — a semi-lucid, feverish tale of female relationships that disintegrates into a kind of woozy, oppressive madness.” – Wendy Ide, Times (UK)

SCREENING: AUGUST 24 at 9:00PM; AUGUST 25 at 6:30PM; AUGUST 27 at 7:30PM
Box office opens 30 mins before showtime.
