Starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Miranda Richardson, Harry Belafonte, Michael Murphy and Steve Buscemi.

Brooke Smith (Dr. Hahn – Grey’s Anatomy and Frances – Ray Donovan); Michael Ornstein (Chucky Marstein – Sons of Anarchy); and Academy Award winning production designer on the film, Stephen Altman, Robert Altman’s son will take the Alex Theatre stage for a LIVE Q&A before the screening. Kansas City will be presented in 35mm.
