Geraldine Chaplin, Star of Nashville, Remembers Robert Altman

This weekend at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, there was a double feature of films starring silver screen legend, Geraldine Chaplin. On Saturday, David Lean's Doctor Zhivago screened for its 50th anniversary, and on Sunday, it was Robert Altman's turn. His beloved Nashville played to a nearly-full house, 40 years after its debut.

Of course, the two films weren't shown just to celebrate their anniversaries, but they were presented by Chaplin herself. She joined the audience at the Gables Art Cinema to introduce both films and followed up with a Q&A. This was my first time seeing Nashville and I have to say, there's nothing better than watching a masterful film with someone to tell you about the intimate details of its production.
