About 3 Women

3 Women box art

Robert Altman succeeds with another ensemble oeuvre in this contemplative film, which won cast member Shelley Duvall a Best Actress award at Cannes in 1977. The story follows seemingly meek Pinky (Sissy Spacek), who gets a job at a nursing home and befriends the loquacious Millie (Duvall). Their unusual friendship turns strangely eerie when they decide to be roommates and begin to change in surprising and unexpected ways.
