Adapting nine stories and a poem from Raymond Carver and transposing the action from the Pacific Northwest to sprawling working class Los Angeles, Robert Altman crafts an eccentric epic which he alone could pull off. SHORT CUTS finds the director returning to the intersecting tableau style of NASHVILLE and A WEDDING, this time with twenty-two major characters, including spectacular turns by Lily Tomlin, Tom Waits, Jack Lemmon, Andie MacDowell, Lyle Lovett, Julianne Moore, and Frances McDormand.
