Arrow Academy have announced Robert Altman's Kansas City for release on 3rd March. The special edition release will come with an array of extras and a illustrated booklet.

With a top flight cast, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Dermot Mulroney, Harry Belafonte, and Miranda Richardson, the film was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and featuring a remarkable soundtrack performed live by some of the best players in contemporary jazz. The release features an audio commentary from Altman himself, as well as little seen promo-featurettes.

  • Gare, Trains et Déraillement, a 2007 visual essay by French critic Luc Lagier, plus short introduction to the film narrated by Lagier
