#86: Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974)

July 13, 2022

Where does Alice live? Not Socorro, NM anymore. Ellen Burstyn plays a recently widowed housewife looking for a new start for herself and her son in ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE. Martin Scorsese, master of urban violence, brings a sense of danger and isolation to this otherwise heartfelt story. Highlights include the very authentic relationship between mother and son. It's not easy to be a single mom looking for work in 1970s America, but Alice meets the challenges with hope, a touch of exasperation and some deep cuts from the Great American Songbook.
