Nashville

Robert Altman’s Nashville is one of my favourite films. It’s a potent mix of politics, country music and personal heartbreak. So a new TV series which pinches the same title is bound to be a pale imitation, right? Wrong. More 4’s Nashville, (written by Callie Khouri, who wrote Thelma and Louise) is also a mix of politics, country music and personal heartbreak, and it’s also terrific. More 4, Thursday nights, ten o’clock. (I am not being paid for this commercial).
