About the film:

Martin Scorcese directs Ellen Burstyn in an Academy Award-winning performance. At 32, Alice Hyatt (Burstyn) watches her dreams slipping away. Instead of a career as a singer, she has an abusive husband, an ill-mannered 12-year-old son, and a life in small-town Oklahoma. But when her husband dies in a traffic accident, Alice heads west to pursue her dreams, working as a lounge singer along the way. Life, however, never seems to go according to plan, and Alice must again face a choice between love and the career that seems as elusive as ever.

“Juggling the moods of Robert Getchell’s script with the brilliance of Godard in his prime, Scorsese flips scenes over to reveal the other side of the coin, then balances them on edge with both sides on view.”

—Thomas Milne, Sight & Sound

Made between his gritty urban crime dramas Mean Streets (1973) and Taxi Driver (1976)Scorsese’s more sensitive female story Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974) competed for the Palme d’Or at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival and became the basis for the long-running sitcom Alice.
