    KANSAS CITY

    Directed by : Robert ALTMAN

    Country : UNITED STATES, FRANCE Length : 115 minutes

    Synopsis

    It's Kansas City, 1934, the eve of one of "Boss" Tom Pendergast's violent elections. The city is wide-open in the midst of the Depression, reverberating to the energy of non-stop jazz. Blondie O'Hara, a young telegraph operator, concocts a desperate plan to kidnap Carolyn Stilton, the socialite wife of an advisor to President Roosevelt. Her goal is to exchange Mrs Stilton for her petty thief of a husband, who has been caught by the legendary gangster Seldom Seen. Surrounded by moral turbulence, the two women forge a relationship that changes from abductor and captive to near-trusting friends as they head towards an inevitable transforming conclusion.
